SS Great Britain Tours

Making headlines as the largest ship in the world when it was launched back in 1843, the SS Great Britain was a revolutionary work of engineering, spearheaded by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Today, the mighty ship remains an important part of Britain’s maritime heritage, now a museum ship that stands proud on Bristol’s waterfront and draws up to 200,000 annual visitors.

Visitors to the SS Great Britain can explore below deck, dress in Victorian costumes, climb the rigging, and peek into the engine rooms, kitchens and crew quarters. Interactive on-board exhibitions tell the story of the ship’s great voyages, including accounts from passengers, crew, and ship captain, Captain Gray; the ship’s many engineering innovations; and its triumphant restoration and return to Bristol in 1970.

Practical Info

The SS Great Britain is permanently docked at the Great Western Dockyard along Bristol’s waterfront and is open daily from 10am to 4:30pm in winter or 5:30pm in summer. Adult admission is £14.
