Brunel's S S Great Britain, Bristol Reviews

  • Set in the old port, still a busy and part modern area, the ship is located in its own Dry Dock allowing you to to explore both the outside of the ship and the amazing interiors. Disabled access is very good, lots of information and interactive stuff for kids and big kids! Staff and costumed interpreters are always around to chat to you. Gift shop and cafe are also very good, GF selection available for snacks. The old port is well worth a walk and there are boat tours and ferries when you are flagging.

  • A fantastic experience. Hands on displays, good explanations, helpful staff. You can walk around the dry dock to see the underside of the ship. The inside has been excellently restored. A small museum charts the boats history. Well worth a visit, especially as the cafe is right on the quayside

  • Superb place to visit. Exhibitions very well set out and a huge amount of information available. Some of the information was brought alive by actors who engaged really well with the children. The staff are great and friendly and knowledgeable. The story of the ship is incredible and a little sad at times. You can see the effort and love people have put into the project. Entry price is reasonable and made even better in that it's valid for a year for limitless visits. Cafe is also good and well stocked. Carparking is difficult.

  • Great place to go for a day out you will remember. Most people think that families and children will be the main target audience for this attraction but they are wrong, anyone can visit here no matter what age. All the different rooms and decorations really make you feel like you are in a Victorian atmosphere while roaming the ship. The mechanics of the ship and all the quarters are excellent and even the dock museum is quite fascinating. Overall an amazing historical experience that everyone enjoys.

  • Great value for money for a family ticket 2 adults 3 children. £45. Lots to look at and touch and interact with. Onboard the ship. Just brilliant. Kids can climb the rigging for free. And below deck absorb the atmosphere. Get a great sense of what the journey would have been like for those wishing to travel before airplanes were developed for mass transit. Well worth a visit.
