Bristol: Brunel’s ss Great Britain

Thursday, 11 September.

On our last day in Bristol, we went to visit Brunel’s ss Great Britain.

Brunel’s ss Great Britain was a passenger steamship that used to sail all over the world from 1845 to 1886. She is now a museum ship.

What a beautiful ship!

We bought our tickets at the counter. It cost £13.75 for Mamae, £7 for Carla, and free for Renan. The tickets permit unlimited return visits for one year, so I hope we can come back soon to visit the museum ship again… *wink!*

Bristol: College Green, Central Library, Bristol Cathedral

Wednesday, 10 September.

We wanted to go to a storytelling session in Bristol Central Library that day. It was going to start at 11.30 am.

We left the hotel at 10 am and walked to the library. We walked slowly, stopping along the way to play, enjoy the view and watch the boats.



We arrived at the library around 11 am. We still had half an hour before the story telling session started, so we went out to play.

Bristol: Temple Gardens and Castle Park

Monday, 8 September.

We arrived at Bristol coach station at around 5 pm. We walked to our hotel and had a bit of a rest.

The kids decided to watch tv. They had to figure out how to turn on the tv by themselves….


We then went out to get something to eat. At around 7 pm, the area close to our hotel was already quiet… Everything was closed except for pubs, so we went to a minimarket to buy food. We went back to our hotel and had sandwiches in our room.
