An elegant and luxurious 7 course dining experience – Brunel’s ss Great Britain

The world’s first great ocean liner and the most innovative steam ship of her time, Brunel’s ss Great Britain revolutionised travel and set new standards in engineering, reliability and speed. By combining size, power and innovative technology, Brunel’s vision for the 'ss Great Britain' made her the great-great-grandmother of all modern ships.

Today, Brunel’s restored 1843 passenger liner, the 'ss Great Britain' offers tours at Bristol’s no.1 visitor attraction and guests can explore the decks, dockside and even descend ‘underwater’ in the Dry Dock to see the majestic shape of the ship’s vast hull.

Brunel’s 'ss Great Britain' is offering the chance to enjoy a luxurious culinary experience on 24 June at 7.30pm. Visitors can board the ship and dine in first class fashion in an exclusive Victorian saloon. Using the ports and destinations that the ship visited as inspiration, guests will be treated to seven exquisite courses and accompanying wines.

The cost of the unique experience is £95 per person.
