HOW TO FIND US

Please note there are road works on Cumberland Road planned until September 2022. This means that by the car, we are only accessible via Cumberland Road in one direction, from Bedminster/Temple.

Avon Crescent is due to be closed until late 2022 so any drivers coming from Hotwells/Portway side of the city must follow the diversion over the Plimsoll Swing Bridge (A3029) and immediately exit to follow Coronation Road (A370) along the other side of the river until you reach the Bedminster Bridge Roundabout, enabling you to take the first exit and drive up Cumberland Road, turning off at Gas Ferry Road (signed).

By Public Transport

The nearest mainline railway station is Bristol Temple Meads, approximately one mile away. The M2 metrobus service runs Monday to Saturday and links Temple Meads and the city centre to Long Ashton Park and Ride. Please alight at stop SS Great Britain on Cumberland road. We are located five minutes walk from this stop.

By Ferry

The cross-harbour ferry runs between Hanover Quay and the SS Great Britain daily (Monday to Friday 7:30-18:15; Saturday and Sunday 10:30- 17:30).

 

By Foot

A pleasant walk along Bristol’s harbour is a great way to arrive at Brunel’s SS Great Britain.

 

By Cycle

We are located just two minutes from the Festival Way cycle path which runs from Bristol city centre to Nailsea. There are a limited number of cycle racks located in Brunel square.

 

By Car

Parking is available at the Maritime Heritage Centre car park just outside Brunel’s SS Great Britain. A partial parking refund is available to visitors to us. Cash or Ringo payments only; no cards.
