ETCHED IN HISTORY
Just a stone’s throw from the water and the SS Great Britain, you can sense the cultural significance of Bristol’s harbourside from the moment you arrive at McArthur’s Yard. Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the ship – and the dockyard on which it was built, are one of the wonders of the industrial world.
Once a busy dock where sailors and merchants would trade goods and set sail for voyages of discovery, the location is now a blossoming creative hub, home to leading animation studio Aardman and Spike Island, famed for its arts centre.
McArthur’s Yard is perfectly placed to explore the harbourside and beyond. Simply hop on the Metro bus, take a tranquil trip across the harbour on one of the water ferries or take a leisurely stroll from your front door.
