Ironbridge Wonder

Loved seeing this wonderful part of the Gorge as it was a follow-up from Blist's Hill Village. Very picturesque.

You go to Ironbridge to see the bridge. We parked the car, walked over the bridge into the riverfront part of the town and looked up and down the river taking a few photos as we did so. On the town side of the bridge we walked under the bridge to see what kept it standing and to stare in... More

Visited Ironbridge on Bank Holiday Monday. As the weather was good it was very busy but a very nice atmosphere. There are some nice little shops and pubs. We went for a little walk down the Severn Trail, which is over the bridge and adjacent to the river which was nice looking over the river.There are also boat trips down... More

This is a lovely spot with lots of history,(well it is a world heritage site, being the first arched bridge in the world to be constructed from Iron) we did not visit the many museums in the area on this particular visit however we may well go back to do so. We parked in the Gorge museum car park which... More

The river cuts quite a deep passage through the coutryside at this point, and one of the best points to view it from is from the Iron Bridge. You can get a good view in both directions. We also walked alongside it at the lower level in one direction by the China Museum. You could spend longer just walking alongside... More

This sail lasts about an hour and the Captain gives a running commentary as to what can be seen from the boat trip around Shrewsbury. He will also answer questions knowledgeably and patiently. This trips gives a chance for relaxation and also to give flavour of what can be see in the centre of the town

A pleasant spot to see the river and admire the workmanship of the bridge. Nice surrounding village shops. Good to walk along the tow path too.

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.
