Four of us went to the cafe at the SS Great Britain yesterday afternoon. The service was appalling - surly and rude. The menu promised freshly made sandwiches but there weren’t any - which was fair enough as it was 2 o clock. So we...More

Really enjoyed a morning here exploring this wonderful old ship. Interesting to see how the passengers travelled in the three classes. The models, sounds and smells really bought it to life. Money well spent.
