Today we discover Bristol’s innovation both past and present. At the newly opened Aerospace Bristol, home of the last Concorde, we’ll discover Bristol’s aviation heritage and its worldwide importance.  This is followed by a visit to the ship that changed the world, Brunel’s SS Great Britain. Visitors can experience what life was like for the ship’s Victorian passengers and crew. You can also learn more about the man himself at the brand new ‘Being Brunel’ Museum, which opened in April 2018. As well as being the birthplace of ground-breaking engineering marvels, Bristol was the birthplace of Methodism. The New Room and John Wesley’s Chapel recently opened its fascinating new museum and visitor experience.
