Future visitors to Brunels ss Great Britain are in for a treat as they are invited to Go Aloft! Visitors can step into the shoes of a Victorian sailor to climb the rigging on the famous steam ship in its dry dock in Bristol, if they are brave enough!
Stannah, lift suppliers to the ss Great Britain Trust and passionate supporters of this unique visitor attraction, sponsored the official launch of Go Aloft! and three Stannah representatives accepted the invitation to climb to another level.
The launch event for Go Aloft! on 3rd April 2014 was attended by more than 200 supporters and VIPs, opened by The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of Bristol, Councillor Faruk Choudhury.
The Go Aloft! experience on the ss Great Britain is unique. No other heritage ship in the UK invites visitors to climb the rigging. If you are over 10 years old, more than 1.4m tall, fit to climb and adventurous by nature you can experience what the crew of the ss Great Britain had to do, day in, day out, on high seas in horrendous weather and miles from land
