“Wonderful Reconstruction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

We last saw this boat just after she got back from the Falklands. Now largely reconstructed to original plans of 1842. Unique

“Great for engineers and historians!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Very interesting to look around Brunel's engineering on the SS Great Britain. Wouldn't go again for a while unless showing someone, as I think there's not much to see on a return visit. Really informative, well laid out and superbly maintained.

“Really enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

What they have done to the SS great britain is fantastic, really interesting for young and old alike. Be careful in the wet weather the outside decks are slippery. Once paid you get to return as many times as you like within a year. My children aged 3 and 8 really enjoyed looking in all the cabins and nosing around the kitchen, it really feels as though you are on a boat onthe sea. A good history lesson for the older ones too.!
