On 22 September 1846 the SS Great Britain ran aground while in the hands of the famous Captain James Hosken, but what really happened that fateful night?
Grab your passport and step aboard Brunel’s SS Great Britain after dark this Halloween to find out, and settle in for a good old-fashioned Victorian fright-fest.
Following the previous success of The Spooky Ship, this year’s Shipwrecked! is all-new, delving into the deep to find fresh tales to tell and mysteries to evoke. Be prepared for a nightmare to remember as you follow your ghoulish guide around the darkest nooks and crannies of Brunel’s 175-year-old ship.
But be careful you don’t wander off, as sunken souls lurk in dark corners waiting to share their chilling tales with you…
The Spooky Ship: Shipwrecked! takes inspiration from the darkest parts of SS Great Britain’s history, bringing the ship vividly to life as professional actors roam the decks and spectres hide around every corner.
