One of the world’s best known and audacious engineers. Famous for work on railways, tunnels, bridges, steamships, dockyards and waterways. His legacy remains in Bath and outskirts.

You can see the remains of Brunel’s work on the Great Western Railway in Sydney Gardens. If you look carefully you may find his commemorative plaque.
