INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF ADMISSION

Discover the women of the SS Great Britain with this volunteer-led talk.


Women made up less than 20% of the passengers who travelled on the SS Great Britain during her working life, however their stories are no less fascinating or inspiring than their male counterparts. This talk explores the experiences of some of these women who travelled or worked aboard Brunel’s famous ship. Discover their motivations for making the epic voyage half way around the world and learn what life was like at sea during the 19th Century from a new perspective.

 
 
Talks will last approximately 20 minutes.
