SS Great Britain

Bristol's number one visitor attraction!


Brunel's SS Great Britain is one of the most important historic ships in the world. When she was launched in 1843 she was called 'the greatest experiment since the Creation'. By combining size, power and innovative technology, Brunel created a ship that changed history. His vision for the SS Great Britain made her the great-great-grandmother for all modern ships.

Experience the sounds, smells and sights of life at sea by stepping on board the world’s first great ocean liner. A great day out for the whole family can be enjoyed at this all-weather attraction. Discover the decks, dockside and go below the spectacular glass sea. Try your hand as a Victorian sailor by having a go at climbing the main mast with Go Aloft!
