Overview

Launched in 1843 as the world's first luxury liner, the SS Great Britain and the adjacent conferencing spaces, combine to make Brunel's SS Great Britain a unique and perfect venue for any event. Choose from the luxurious First Class Dining Saloon or the bright Promenade Deck, for banqueting and drinks receptions. It is even possible to dine in a replica of the famous engineer’s dining room, as a part of the new Being Brunel museum space. The contemporary conference facilities include the 250-seat capacity Great Eastern Hall, the versatile Viridor Theatre, perfect for events for up to 120 guests, and private meeting rooms with spectacular views of the harbour and ship. During each event guests are welcome to explore the ship at their leisure, which acts as an inspiring centrepiece and makes for an event they'll never forget. Every client has the support of a dedicated Events Coordinator, who is on hand at every stage to help tailor each event to their need.
