Step aboard the SS Great Britain and enjoy a spectacular Sunday Roast. Dine in the ship’s opulent First Class Dining Saloon and sit in the same surroundings as the Victorian passengers who voyaged on board the ship over 100 years ago.

Two and three course options are available. If you do not already have a valid annual ticket or membership, you must purchase Lunch + day ticket. An admission ticket is mandatory for access to site, and you will be refused entry without one. The admission is discounted at £7.50 instead of the normal day ticket price of £22.

I haven't booked a time slot yet, as I have to pay when I book, I know these dates get booked up well in advance and there are few remaining tickets for July and August so I am planning for September, please don't hesitate to book if you are interested or we will miss our slot. The plan will be to meet and explore, then be at the First Class Dining Saloon to be seated for our chosen time.

Getting There

By Car

Parking is available at the Maritime Heritage Centre car park (location 2761 on Ringo) next to Brunel’s SS Great Britain. It is operated by Bristol City Council. A partial parking refund is available to day visitors to Brunel’s SS Great Britain ensuring that the maximum you will pay for parking is £5 (for 5 hours)*.

Pay and display machines in the car park only accept cash (and only coins). Please bring up to £12.50 in coins if you wish to pay in cash. Alternatively, you can pay by card using the Ringo website. Register and pay using the Ringo website (rather than the Ringo app) as some credit cards do not work through the app. You will then receive your partial refund at Brunel’s SS Great Britain. Please ask for assistance at our Visitor Centre if you are having problems with parking payment and they will do their best to help you.

Bristol’s Clean Air Zone is in effect. Some older vehicles (less than 29% of cars) have to pay to come into Bristol. Find out more and check whether your vehicle will be charged. An alternative option to consider is the Long Ashton Park & Ride service which operates on Saturdays and weekdays.

Important: nearby road layouts have recently changed and a new bus gate is in effect on Cumberland Road. Please be alert for bus gate signage as you leave Brunel’s SS Great Britain.*Ringo charges an administration fee on top of the parking tariff. Please note that the discounted parking rate is not available to those attending ticketed after-hours events such as the Summer Lates Series.
