“Best attraction in Brizzle”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is the best attraction in Bristol. It is educational but also so fun and interesting- get the headphones and tour the different cabins.

“great day out”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

If you take your time and read everything you can spend the whole day out, however, if you want a snack and a drink be prepared to queue - they could do with a bigger cafe.

“What made Britain great!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The day was cold grey and driving rain. What do you do with the family? A little voice reminded me of a colleague advising me to visit ss Great Britain when in Bristol. With some apprehension we drove through the stormy weather to get there. It was the best decision we could have made. What a wonderful experience. So much to see, incredible atmosphere creating an idea of what the ship would have been like in it's heyday. To top it all the admission ticket lasts a year so you can revisit as often as you like in that time - a slight problem for those of us living in Lincolnshire which is miles from anywhere let's face it.

“About the ss Great Britain”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Explanations everywhere of what I was seeing. Looking at the cabins one could have a good idea of what it would have been like to travel on the different classes.
