Journey on the Avon
Today, gently swaying in the waters of the ‘Floating Harbour’ of Bristol, and lovingly cared for by a team of dedicated volunteers, resides The Matthew - a full size replica of John Cabot’s ship which charted North America in 1497. She retraced the famous journey of her namesake in 1997 for the 500th anniversary of the voyage carrying the same number of crew and taking the same amount of time to reach Newfoundland.
A thrilling insight into The Matthew’s structure is brought to us by Kerry Goodwin who has painted the ship as it approaches the Avon Gorge and world-famous Clifton Suspension Bridge designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Kerry has carefully maintained the impressive grandeur of the ship with its intricate sails, towering masts and complex rigging. Overhead, the annual Clifton hot air balloon festival is in full flight, silently floating about The Matthew as it gracefully cuts through the River Avon.

SS Great Britain
Today, Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s SS Great Britain dominates Bristol’s historic waterfront. Dressed with flags and ready for departure, just as she looked at her launch in 1843, she welcomes visitors to come aboard and explore. The ship has been painstakingly restored to recreate life on the world’s first great luxury liner.
SS Great Britain is one of the most important historic ships in the world. When she was launched, she was called ‘the greatest experiment since the creation’. No one had ever designed so vast a ship, nor had the vision to build it of iron. In 1852 Gibbs, Bright & Co. purchased the SS Great Britain. The ship was to rely more on sail power than on her steam engine as this would save money and an extra upper deck was built, so that the ship could carry up to 700 passengers.
