Surrounded by lots of museums, restaurants and hotels, this is a lovely spot to walk along. Never realised how much of a role the river had in the industrial revolution. The bridge is great, you can walk over and under it. It's also a great place to sit and relax.

A lovely site to visit, the museum annual pass looks very good value too. When Abraham Darby came here to smelt Iron with coke instead of charcoal it changed the world, Difficult to imagine now how much the Severn contributed to the industrial revolution.

As you walk along the river of this town, views of the bridge dominate the setting…one is keenly aware of the industrial past. This is the world's first Iron bridge….spend a few hours walking up and down the main street.

If you are looking to see the Tajmahal here it may not be as grand but it is grand in its own way. Being at the bridge, you sit back and transport yourself back into history to what it would be part of the Industrial revolution. What would you have done? Revere the masterpiece work of the times that changed... More

my wife and I came to IRONBRIDGE to see the bridge and marvel at the lovely scenery. The bridge was magnificent and the second hand book shop is the best one I have ever been into with thousands of authors. Well done.

Ironbridge is a fantastic place to spend a couple of hours or the afternoon. The view of the river is beautiful and the bridge itself is amazing to see. Along the river there are lots of cafes, restaurants and small shops selling antiques and gifts. On the other side there are lots of trails and walks to do as a... More

We visited the Ironbridge gorge as we were staying in Chester and we felt it was too good to miss. It took 1 hr to get there but the bridge has so much history that we had to see it and the Coalbrookdale iron museum which I can't say left me spellbound but my husband very interested.. There are so... More

The magnificent structure 'Ironbridge' was the first single span arch bridge made of new material cast iron; it was opened on New Years Day 1781 to cross the River Severn near Coalbrookdale and Telford. This historic bridge was designed to span the wooded deep sided gorge with sufficient height to allow the coal trading ships of that time to pass... More
