Private dinner on board the SS Great Britain, located in historic Bristol Docks
Special Event highlights:
- Gala dinner on board the SS Great Britian in the First Class dining Saloon
- Private boat cruise through the original Bristol Docks and floating harbour
- Great Western Railway expert Tim Bryan speaking on Brunel
In 1859, the great engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel died at just 53, but in that lifetime he completely revolutionised transport in Britain and beyond, and his engineering achievements are still recognised across the developed world. This wonderful UK short break explores the many aspects of his remarkable talents as an engineer, designer and entrepreneur.
His ship, the SS Great Britain, is proudly located in Bristol, in dry docks, where she was built in 1843 as the first screw driven purpose built passenger liner. It is here in the First Class dining saloon, where you will dine on Friday evening.
