A Historical Trip to Bristol

Hey girlies! Spring is around the corner, the wind is still a bit chilly but the sun has been making its appearance more often than usual. It’s finally time to put away the big heavy winter coats and bulky puffer jackets. (Yay!)

But for the meantime, I want to share with you guys our little trip to Bristol. There is a lot of history in this city. Though we did not manage to explore the entire city(it is quite a big city to be fair), we did however go to the city’s number one tourist attraction.

First stop is M Shed museum which showcase everything Bristol from past up to the present. If it’s your first time to visit Bristol like us, this is a good place to start with.

(This is gonna be a lengthy post so bare with me lol)

Next stop was a museum ship called Brunel’s SS Great Britain. This ship is a former passenger steamship during 1845 til 1854 which made her the longest passenger ship in the world at the time. This ship’s journey from the Falkland Islands where she was left for years and years, back to where it is sitting now is so long and interesting but it’s definitely worth checking. I do wanna put it out there that going in to see the ship is not free, I believe we paid £17 for an adult ticket.

Walking in inside this ship is like stepping back in time as they have kept most of the interiors as close to how it was before. Even the ambiance and the smell of different decks still resembles the olden days making the experience more interesting.

It’s definitely worth checking this attraction out if you want to know a bit of history. We also visited a little museum about Isambard Kingdom Brunel. He was the mechanical and civil engineer responsible with the design and the making of the SS Great Britain.

There are lot more places to visit in Bristol and a day will not be enough for it. We will definitely come back in the summer to check out more of it. 🙂
