Brunel really is everywhere. If the Clifton Suspension Bridge is Brunel’s finest piece of work in Bristol, the SS Great Britain can’t be far behind. A museum ship now located on the Harbourside, this vessel is known as the ‘Ship That Changed The World’ and we aren’t about to disagree. The longest passenger ship on the planet back in the day, and was also the first iron steamer to cross the Atlantic, doing so over 14 days in 1845. The ship is now decked out for visitors as opposed to passengers, an incredible time machine that transports you back to the 19th century through all the senses, even smell. Yes, that means you can experience the pungent horror of the 19th century. As with the Being Brunel museum (found on the boat), anyone named Isambard gets to visit for free.
