    SS Great Britain

    by KennetRose Written Jan 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    It's just a list of some places to consider not visiting alone. Not that it will cause you any harm, I've visited them alone myself, but just in case you don't like risking yourslef.

    Unique Suggestions: St Paul's, Jamaica St area, Fishponds

    Fun Alternatives: Just don't go there much...

    SS Great Britian and the Matthew.

    Location: Anchor Road, Bristol

    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.
