Make your way to the Brunel’s SS Great Britain, located 20 minutes' walking distance from Bristol city center and 30 minutes' walking distance from Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station.
Exchange your entry ticket for the chance to go back in time and understand how this ship changed the face of global travel. Dress up in Victorian costumes, climb the rigging and explore all of the state rooms and common areas at your own pace. See a working replica of the original engine and stop by the Dockyard Museum to take in the educational displays, including archival film footage of the ship's homecoming. Go 'underwater' in the Dry Dock, where you can see the ship's propeller, bow and learn how the desert-like conditions have helped preserve the hull.
Your ticket includes an audio companion, which will walk you through sections of the ship with informative commentary. A typical visit takes roughly 3 hours, but you may explore at your leisure.
