O8 October – Bristol Outing to S.S. Great Britain

O8 October - Bristol Outing to S.S. Great Britain

The S.S. Great Britain, launched in 1843, was the first propeller-driven iron ocean-going ship in history, designed by Brunel using daring new technology.

The award winning museum shows the ship appear to ‘float’ in her glass dry dock and then to descend under the ‘sea’ to enjoy the view from below, before stepping back in time in the Dockyard Museum and boarding as Victorian passengers.
