Go Aloft!

Go Aloft is taking a break this year but we hope to bring this exciting experience back in 2022.

Take the chance to discover what it was really like to be a member of the SS Great Britain's crew by climbing the rigging to over 25 metres above ground level. 
If you are brave enough you will then edge out onto the main yard, which will take you nine metres out across the Great Western Dockyard below, unveiling a unique and breath-taking view of Bristol.
Go Aloft! has been generously supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England. Brunel’s SS Great Britain is also very grateful to the Swire Charities and all of the Trust’s members for their generous support of Go Aloft.
