The SS Great Britain is one of the most famous ships in the world. By combining size, power and innovative technology it’s designer Isambard Kingdom Brunel created a ship that changed history.
This lecture will describe his vision for the ship, its history as a transatlantic liner, emigrant clipper and windjammer and some of the people who built and travelled on her.
Wrecked and abandoned in the Falklands Islands in 1886, the Great Britain was the subject of an extraordinary rescue in 1970 when she was salvaged and returned to the dock in Bristol where she was built in 1843, and the lecture will conclude with the remarkable story of its renaissance as one of Britain’s most popular visitor attractions.
