Ironbridge is the perfect spot to see the flow of the river severn, you can see it from all angles, and see how it has carved its way through the severn valley, also viewing it from Ironbridge gives you the chance to see the famous bridge, and a lovely little town, with some great shops and coffee shops.

A unique day out, small and brilliant place. Lots of gift shops, tea rooms and scenic from the bridge. Well worth a visit, especially in the height of summer when all of the Poppy's are in bloom. The war memorials are also quite spectacular.

My friends & I went to Ironbridge for the day of shopping, a few drinks & a meal. We also went across the 100foot cast Iron Bridge, that goes over the River Severn in Shropshire, which was built in 1779. It's a great landmark, in a lovely place.

After 4 hours at Blists Hill, we went over to look at the original iron toll bridge over the River Severn. Quite intricate and painted a pretty shade of blueyonder green. Enjoyed our leisurely walk across and took our time. There's a pretty row of shops and cafes on the other side. Edges of the pavement were made on iron... More

We really liked Ironbridge. Even the curbs are finished off with iron. The bridge was impressive and the toll house museum kept us warm for 20 minutes. It was a lovely spot. The information boards detail walks which would have been nice on a warmer day! Definitely worth a visit but it's not a day job unless you combine it... More

The river is beautiful and was very essential during the Industrial Revolution. It floods the banks each year and one pub I visited the Boat Inn at Coalport gets flooded each year and the tenants have to evacuate. It is lovely to listen to the river day or night

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.
