The Underfall Yard is a historic boatyard on Spike Island serving Bristol Harbour in England.
Underfall Yard was commonly referred to as "The Underfalls" and takes its name from the underfall sluices. The construction was completed in 1809 under the direction of William Jessop and substantially improved by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in the 1830s.

Fantastic interactive aerial map of the whole of Bristol Docks. Fascinating to watch people working on ships and boats in the yard and it seems like a genuinely great place to take kids for a short visit while walking around the docks.

Really enthusiastic staff who are proud of Bristol's maritime history. There were also lots of interactive displays which were great at educating adults and children alike.

Fascinating small museum by the working boatyard. Great café, with views along the floating harbour. Friendly volunteer guides.

Great little museum. Lots to see here for both adults and kids. Children will love using magnets to open the model lock gates and pressing buttons to light up parts of the harbour on the aerial view. Check what time the pumps operate. The staff that explain their purpose and how they work are very knowledgeable. Well worth doing in here on a walk round the harbour.

Lovely place to visit for an hour. The kids always love learning about the history of Bristol harbour and there's lots of interactive exhibits for them to enjoy. There's really nice food and drink available too, courtesy of Pickle. And the views of the water from the outdoor seating area are hard to beat.

Interesting Museum showcasing the industrial heritage of the city of Bristol, and how it expanded, due to changes made to the flow of the river, and improvements to the docks. Interactive models illustrate the working of locks, and clearing of silt from the floating harbour area.

Bristol’s best kept FREE and Uber friendly secret!! Not only highly educational of Bristol’s floating harbour (!) which our 4 yr old and her friends always have fun with the interactive displays. But the volunteers are super knowledge and warmly welcome anyone who passes. Of course, the perfect distraction whilst waiting for the Bristol Ferry too. And did I mention the funky little cafe??

One of my favorite parts of Bristol. Local history and local beer all served up with a smile.
