Pocket Guide: Bristol Brunel Institute Hotels

In the historic dockyards of Bristol city centre, the Brunel Institute is dedicated to one of Britain's greatest achievements of the Industrial Revolution, the design and construction of the SS Great Britain. It's centrally located close to Bristol's main retail district, a wide selection of restaurants, and plenty of deluxe and affordable hotels.

Dedicated to One of the World's Most Distinguished Engineers

The Brunel Institute is named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who designed the SS Great Britain and many other pioneering projects such as the Great Western Railway and the nearby Clifton Suspension Bridge. Born in Portsmouth in 1806, he also helped build the world's first tunnel beneath a navigable river, the Thames Tunnel, and revolutionised transatlantic shipping.

If you're looking for value-for-money accommodation within walking distance of the Brunel Institute, try the contemporary Ibis Bristol Centre, which provides immaculate three star accommodation with free WiFi.

More About the SS Great Britain

Completed in the mid-19th Century, the SS Great Britain has travelled hundreds of thousands of miles across the world's oceans. It originally weighed an astonishing 1,930 tons, and at 98 metres in length it was by quite some margin the world's largest vessel afloat when it was built.

Other Things to See at the Brunel Institute

Besides the SS Great Britain, the Brunel Institute is also home to thousands of photographs illustrating Bristol's maritime history. In addition, you can observe around 2,500 ship plans, watch films of historic maritime craft, see dozens of ship models, and take a look at numerous maritime-themed artworks.

For luxury accommodation close to the Brunel Institute, consider the deluxe Bristol Hotel, a chic four star venue providing impeccable hospitality and spacious, refined rooms with free WiFi.

Other Places to Visit in Bristol City Centre

If you've time to spare before you check-in or after you check-out of your Bristol hotel, you could visit the superb At-Bristol science attraction then explore the picturesque Georgian public space of Queen Square. The Brunel Institute is a very short drive from the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which was officially 150 years by 2014 and is 75 metres above the River Avon, offering excellent views of the striking Avon Gorge.
