Enjoying Brunel's Bristol

Isambard Kingdom Brunel - the man who connected Bristol to London and, indeed, to the world.

Enjoying a riverside view.

Sailing the oceans blue on a true piece of history @ssGreatBritain

A fascinating trip to the SS Great Britain, "moored" in the very same dry dock in which she was built 150 years ago.

Heading below the "water line" to see the great iron hull.

She wasn't the first ship built of iron or equipped with a screw propeller, but she was the first to combine these features in a large ocean-going ship.


Imagining life aboard the ship.
