The Ship

Permanent
Free with admission

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of life onboard!

Sitting proudly on her glass ‘sea’, Brunel’s SS Great Britain dominates Bristol’s historic waterfront. Dressed with flags and ready for departure, just as she looked at her launch in 1843, she welcomes visitors to come aboard and explore.

The ship has been painstakingly restored to recreate life on the world’s first great luxury liner. Step back in time through scenes so life-like you’ll feel as if you’re intruding!
