SS Great Britain
Or Grape Written as the locals call it!
Nothing wrong with Brunel's pioneering steamship of course - all part of his grand scheme for travelling from London to New York entirely by his own Great Western enterprise. It looks magnificent moored in the Floating Harbour, it's just that it's not really worth the steep admission fee to get on board.
It's considered cool to get married on board, apparently.
Unique Suggestions: Enjoy looking at it from one of the water taxis

Unique Suggestions: St Paul's, Jamaica St area, Fishponds
Fun Alternatives: Just don't go there much...

Ok I have also Listed this under Must see but to charge 6 pounds to go and see her is a rip off especially as you can walk over the bridge and see just as much.
