Burrells Wharf & SS Great Eastern
National Maritime Museum, Ground floor, Seminar Room, In Greenwich
Price: £15 (£12 for members)
The SS Great Eastern was a leviathan of the Victorian era. The ship, designed by Brunel, took two months to launch.
Then carry on to National Maritime Museum where Curator Andrew Choong will give a talk looking at iron and steel shipbuilding in 19th-century London and how and why two of the most revolutionary ships of that period, SS Great Eastern and HMS Warrior, were built here within a couple of years of each other.
Join us and the National Maritime Museum as we look for other slipways, potential eel traps, and ship remains.
