Visited early as site opened, the site cafe is conveniently open beforehand and has great views. Spent 3 hours looking around and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very worthwhile to give yourself enough time to absorb all the interesting facts and information presented to you. Would definetly recommend a visit.

A fabulous visit greatly enjoyed.
All facets of the visit were fantastic, from the ship itself to the buildings around what was the original yard to the exhibitions inside.
Informative and compelling- excellent to have a ticket which allows a revisit.
The ship itself makes it easy to imagine Transatlantic travel Victorian style- first class must have been a great experience- not so sure about steerage!!
I’m not sure about any journey to Australia!!
All exhibitions are engaging for adults as well as children.
Lots to learn about the ship itself- as well as the man whose imagination , skills and vision made so much possible.
Lovely cafe with benches along the riverbank.

Having done the trans Atlantic crossing on the Queen Mary 2, I was keen to visit the first iron, propeller driven version ever. Did not disappoint! Wish I had more time to ask questions, but only had an hour (not enough!). Loved the Ashes room (one for the cricket fans), and the moving crank.

Great displays, fantastic recreation of arguable the most important ship of the modern age. A story well-told.

Superb restoration giving the experience of what it would have been like to travel on this historic ship. plenty to see and a good museum attached plus the amazing view of the hull from the dry dock. couldn't fault it and the highlight of our visit to Bristol
