Bristol’s new ship galley

Date Posted: 20/08/2011

Brunel’s ss Great Britain, located in Bristol Dockyard, has launched a new ship’s galley inspired by the 150th anniversary of the publication of Beeton’s Book of Household Management, to tie in with this year’s ‘Let’s Dine!’ theme.

Visiting groups can experience what it would have been like on board the ship in 1866, homeward bound after almost two months at sea. The gallery interacts with all the senses, and features heat from the stoves, smells from the ovens, and scratching from the rats. Children’s trails, actors in character and costume, storytelling and food-tasting sessions will also run alongside.

Groups planning a visit to Brunel’s ss Great Britain can take advantage of a host of benefits including special rates for pre-booked parties of 20 plus, a meet and greet service, and group tours.
