The ship was an extraordinary leap in technology when it was built, and has been carefully restored to show the original accommodation. The whole waterfront area is attractive and interesting, and I'd highly recommend touring the ship.

Imaginatively displayed in a restored dry dock which forms part of the spectacular Floating Harbour in Bristol Dockyards. The accompanying museum is excellent in invoking the incredible productivity...More

Well without knowing your mother's age 🤔🙈, I would suggest if she is reasonably fit, ie could she touch her toes, she should be fine. Looks like one at a time, but it's in two stages. Up the rigging to a crows nest, then... More
Well without knowing your mother's age 🤔🙈, I would suggest if she is reasonably fit, ie could she touch her toes, she should be fine. Looks like one at a time, but it's in two stages. Up the rigging to a crows nest, then out onto the spar. So it might be doable. Good luck, have fun😂😂
