SS Great Britain

Hold your next business meeting or event on board Brunel's SS Great Britain, one of the world's most famous historic ships, now beautifully restored and sat comfortably in her dry dock at Bristol Harbour – the very place where she first set sail from in 1845. With capacity for 300 guests this is a very unique setting for a wedding or drinks reception, but is also great for business meetings and events of all sizes – a conference, awards presentation, training day, product launch, board meeting – what a place to hold it!

There are 11 event spaces at SS Great Britain; the entire ship has room for 300 guests standing or 220 seated; otherwise hire part of it – the Weather Deck or Promenade Deck for drinks for 150, or the First Class Dining Saloon for banquets for up to 160. The Hayward Saloon offers a smaller space for up to 50. Back to larger events, The Great Eastern Hall holds 250 in theatre style or for a reception, and the Viridor Theatre adjacent to the ship 120 or 150 respectively. 4 smaller rooms are ideal for more intimate meetings or private dining for 12-30.

You’ll be in the capable hands of an experienced Events Co-ordinator, first class catering will be tailored to suit your event, there’s cutting-edge AV technology and complimentary wifi. Add in a private tour of the ship, enjoy the fabulous views out over the harbour to the hills beyond the city.

There is parking just outside SS Great Britain; Bristol Temple Meads station is 1 mile away.
