For a good time go

Wasn't sure what it was about but was recommended to us to do and WOW, an experience. Not only was it an extensive learning lesson but the way it is set out and the attention to detail throughout the whole exhibit was hugely fun to explore.
Big thank you to Russ for highlighting something's and giving us some stories about the boat and the people!!

A great day out
Jun 2021
A fantastic experience going around the SS Great Britain - takes you back to how people travelled a 150 years ago. How they managed to fit in the bunk beds goodness knows! Russ was a great storyteller and gave us an insight into who travelled on the ship and some individual interesting stories. Definitely recommend a visit.

Brilliant Attraction - Great Staff
Jun 2021
I've visited SS Great Britain twice now, most recently in June 2021 with my Mum. It's such a well thought out attraction, with amazing touches like the sounds and smells on the ship as they would have been when it was at sea. The Brunel museum at the end is very interesting too. The staff are fantastic, everyone is friendly, enthusiastic and super keen to answer questions if you ask them.

Sail back in time
Jun 2021 • Couples
The whole tour could easily take you 2 1/2 -3 hours. From the museum to the magnificently restored boat to the new Brunel section everything is well laid out with just enough information. Inside the boat the sounds and smells at sea are brilliantly recreated

It was amazing! Watch out for the alcoholic monkey!
Jun 2021
This was great! The boat is preserved and there are live sounds that bring the boat to life! Russ Leith was a great narrator and storyteller showing us around the boat and telling stories about the passengers (look out for the alcoholic monkey!!!)

Anyway, tickets last all year round so I might go back for more pictures!

Interesting visit
May 2021 • Couples
We had a one night stay in Bristol before visiting Bath and the South West. I had prebooked our tickets. I assumed that due to covid it was quieter than usual - which allowed us plenty of time to look and read .
The history of the ship and its voyages as well as it’s various class of passengers was so interesting - especially what type of voyage 1st class would receive compared to lower class.
Read about the ships final place in the Falklands before it was brought back to Bristol.
We also looked around Brunei’s museum was also interesting
The visit took us about 90 min

Did the SS Great Brittain tour last week end. Exceeded my expectations. The crew and staff are very informative and enthusiastic and can answer most questions about the ship. Fantastic and authentic restoration of this famous historic ship and conditions on board during it's many voyages around the world. Take your time exploring as the tour has some surprises !
