If you are looking to see the Tajmahal here it may not be as grand but it is grand in its own way.

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

The river Severn is beautiful and peaceful. it is hard to believe that the ironbridge gorge is where the industrial revolution began. There is a lot of interesting local history to discover in the area.

This river is beautiful wherever it cuts through the Shropshire countryside! Ironbridge offers 1-5 day kayaking trips along the Severn, and we will definitely be looking to do this next year.

The Ironbridge is excellent for a quick (30min) stop and photo opportunity. The impressive structure is free to visit and walk over/under. Limited parking is available on the High Street, parallel to the River Severn, but at busy times it might be necessary to park at the West Ironbridge car park. Continue along the Wharfage and you can find it... More
