The Hell With Perfection — Freedom for Photography!

SS Great Britain


The SS Great Britain is one of Bristol’s most popular tourist attractions.

It was built in 1843 and was the largest boat of that time. Initially built as a steam ship, the sails were added later on in it’s life. It has had a chequered history – it was used for crossing the Atlantic; shipping immigrants to Australia; and then used as a warehouse in the Falkland Islands. Whilst in the Falklands, it was also sunk! In 1970, it returned to Bristol where it has been restored to near-original, albeit museum-piece condition.

Visiting is a treat for any lomographer. You can get a ticket which allows you to visit as many times as you want in a year – ideal for going back with different cameras/film combos! There are all sorts of brightly-coloured flags, exhibitions, sails, naval artifacts, and other things to see. Well worth the trip if you’re in the area!
