We travel south to the city of Bristol and the Holiday Inn Hotel, arriving in the early afternoon. The remainder of the day is then free to commence exploring the city.

Day Two

This morning we head to the Dockyard, where we discover Brunel’s SS Great Britain, said to be the ship that changed the world: The world’s first great ocean liner is fully accessible and the winner of numerous tourism awards. We head beneath the glass sea and walk through the history of the SS Great Britain in the Dockyard Museum and step onto the ship itself. We also see the national museum and visitor experience, ‘Being Brunel’, where the personal possessions, documents and artefacts of Isambard Kingdom Brunel are displayed. Following our visit here we board a Bristol Packet boat for a tour of the city docks with a live and entertaining commentary to see the sights of Bristol and learn about the city’s history and culture. The afternoon is then at leisure to explore the city further.
