An unmissable asset to Bristol's many historic sights. No visit to Bristol would be complete without a trip to this magnificent ship - it has something for everyone - young and old regardless of interest. And with the amount to see, and the year long readmission for free on each entry ticket, it is brilliant value for money.

We really enjoyed spending a couple of hours at whats probably the best family attraction in Bristol. The ship has an amazing history bought to life through a well laid out museum and of course on board the ship itself. You can explore three decks and also go down into the dry dock to see the underside of this great... More

Although the tickets are expensive it is well worth the money. They can be used again and again for a full year. All the exhibits are excellent even down to the "rats" in the galley. Everything is explained as you tour round. The tour caters for all ages and lifts are available for those with walking disabilities. We thoroughly recommend... More

We went on a bit of a last minute trip having lived in Bristol for 5 years. It had always been on the to do list. Being able to explore the ship through the ages was extremely interesting and then looking round the ship as it would have been on a voyage was brilliant. Got to follow specific people and... More

Brilliant day out. Tickets expensive but can be used again and again for a year. Took the whole family including grandsons of 11 & 8. All had a great time, boys thought it was the best day out ever! We were there for 5 hours including lunch; boys had to be dragged away. Lots of interactive stuff for all ages... More

This was my 3rd visit , my first was in 1970 on the day she was brought back to Bristol. Parking is available very close (pay & display) - we found a free space on Cumberland Road. If you're not arriving by car your best bet is to arrive by water taxi or use stop 4 of Citysightseeing's open top... More

A very interesting tourist attraction for all ages Well worth a visit you can visit all parts of the ship. The audio devices help you to understand what you are seeing. On the way out you can brouse the shop for souveniers if you wish..

It is probably 2-3 years since we visited this attraction and a lot more has been done to it since then. Considering the state of the ship when it returned from South America it is amazing that it now looks like it was built recently! Well worth a visit and your ticket is valid for 12 months.
