Visit Brunel's glorious SS Great Britain and Museum, eat amazing food at Wapping Wharf, learn about the industrial past of the Bristol Floating Harbor at The Underfall Yard, explore St Nicholas Indoor Market, or enjoy a drink at one of the many King Street bars by Welsh Back.

Each stop gives a different flavor of Bristol. Although this is a self-guided tour, the boat's crew will be more than happy to suggest, recommend, and advise where to go so you have the best visit possible.
