School visits

Brunel’s SS Great Britain is an ideal location for a day out of the classroom. The historic ship, Dockyard Museum and beneath the ‘sea’ in the Dry Dock capture the imagination with lots to see, hear, touch and even smell!

We offer a range of interactive workshops, guided tours and self guided learning resources that can be booked or downloaded. 

We are taking bookings for the current and next academic years. Please be aware that there is very limited availability in January, February, March and April. However, there is currently good availability in May, June and July.

We can run up to 3 workshops a day, Tuesday to Friday (subject to availability). We have selected dates available in the Spring Terms for our Being Brunel Show (suitable for large groups of Years 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9), please call the bookings team is you wish to enquire about availability in the Summer Term. 

We do advise you book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Please call our bookings team on 0117 926 0680 or email them at to discuss all availability.
