Why visit Brunel's SS Great Britain?

No trip to Bristol is complete without visiting this ship so come and discover the ship that changed the world

Brunel’s SS Great Britain tells the incredible story of one of Britain’s greatest engineers and one of the most important ships in maritime history. In 1970, the SS Great Britain Project brought the rusting shell of the SS Great Britain home from the Falkland Islands, braving 8,000 miles of a stormy sea, in an attempt to save it from ruin and keep its story alive. That ‘project’ became the SS Great Britain Trust, and today they continue to care for the ship and Brunel collections for the good of everybody, for all time.
