A look at the life of Bristol's most famous son, master engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, through two of his iconic constructions. Our walk will take us past the world's first transatlantic steam ship, the SS Great Britain, as well as the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the world's longest bridge at the time it was built. Both take pride of place today in the centre of modern Bristol, which is exactly where we'll start.
Stepping over 200 years into the past, we'll learn about the world Brunel lived in and understand the way he changed the world we live in today. We'll wind our way along the river Avon, on a route that's almost entirely pedestrianised, and end at the Clifton's Suspension Bridge's official viewpoint.
