Now an award-winning museum, Isambard Kingdom Brunel's SS Great Britain was built and launched in 1843 - the largest vessel afloat at this time and the first ocean-going, propeller driven iron ship. It is moored alongside a replica of John Cabot's Matthew, the ship John Cabot was sailing in when he discovered Newfoundland in 1497. Both are open to the public from 10am to 5pm and if you buy a ticket for the SS Great Britain (£10.50 for adults) you will get free entry to the Matthew.

It was quite an event in Bonavista when the Matthew replica visited a little over 10 years ago.....Not everyday does the Queen come to town,..,.,
