Penguin Trail

Brunel's SS Great Britain

Thursday 22 October - Sunday 1 November

Tickets must be prebooked - buy online

Help Stanley and his friends find their eggs this October half term!


Waddle on over to Brunel’s SS Great Britain and meet a group of penguins visiting from the Falkland Islands, where the ship lay abandoned until 1970. Stanley and his friends have come to find out more about the ship’s awe-inspiring homecoming to Bristol 50 years ago, but they’ve been enjoying their visit so much that they’ve lost their eggs! Set off on the Penguin Trail and search the ship and dockyard to help reunite the penguins with their precious chicks.

The Penguin Trail is part of our activities this year celebrating the SS Great Britain’s 50 years back home in Bristol. Don't miss our outdoor photography exhibition which is also on along the harbour.

We are delighted that the Falkland Islands Association and Falkland Islands businesses have supported this trail and the incredibly life-like penguins, bringing a flavour of an important era of the ship's history to Bristol this year.
