Hold an event to remember on the ship that changed the world. Located just 1.5 hours from London in the beautiful Bristol harbour, Brunel’s SS Great Britain offers a truly unforgettable and unique event experience. The beautifully restored ship lies in the heart of Bristol’s harbourside, and offers some of the most spectacular views in the region.

With versatile spaces both above and below deck, Brunel’s SS Great Britain is the perfect venue to hire for your teambuilding day, corporate event, gala dinner or drinks reception. In addition, holding your event with us means you are also supporting us as a charity. 

Discover what it was really like to be a member of the SS Great Britain’s crew by climbing the rigging to over 25 metres above ground level. Those team members brave enough will edge out onto the main yard, which will take you nine metres out across the Great Western Dockyard below, unveiling a unique and breath-taking view of Bristol

From small meetings to large conferences, our state-of-the-art facilities set within the historic dockyard provide the perfect setting to inspire event attendees. Alongside this Bristol landmark are six contemporary meeting and event spaces, complete with WiFi and audio-visual equipment. These can accommodate small meetings right through to large conferences and exhibitions for up to 250 guests. Spot a famous Bristol balloon in flight whilst hosting reception drinks on the beautiful weather deck of the ship before heading to our First Class Dining Saloon for a truly inspirational private dinner.


Take inspiration from Brunel whilst exploring the SS Great Britain and Being Brunel, our new museum, on your event day. Interactive and fascinating; our new event space really does add a wow to your event.

Every corporate client has the support of a dedicated Events Coordinator, who is on hand at every stage to help tailor each event to their needs.

During each event, delegates are welcome to explore the ship, Dockyard Museum and Dry Dock at their leisure. Tailored tours can also be arranged as this offers an inspiring centrepiece to your event. Visit us to discover how Brunel’s SS Great Britain can help you plan an event you and your colleagues will never forget.
