Historic waterway with an iconic bridge built of iron in 1779 became the center for industrial innovation in the 18th and 19th centuries.

This the pull for most visitors to the area. Take your time to appreciate the engineering involved and visit the Toll House on the far bank. The friendly attendant there is a mine of information

We really enjoyed Ironbridge, It is a fascinating place, I was amazed at Brunels Bridge and the views from it are exhilarating. There is a very nice Fish and Chip shop near by and you will find people sitting on benches overlooking the river enjoying their meal whilst taking in the views. GREAT.

The iron bridge is so famous, that it is such a pleasure to see it for yourself. Visiting the other museums helps you to appreciate the wonder of the bridge. Do visit the toll house, while you are there.

The bridge itself is a triumph of engineering and has a great deal of history which can be learnt about by visiting the toll house.This offers free entry and although small still manages to accommodate a great range of small gifts local to the area.I purchased a tea towel featuring a circus elephant which crossed the toll bridge in 1932.Excellent!

while parking at the Gorge ,we spotted a pirate Ship steaming along the Severn,so we found out where to board it and had a lovely trip along the river,all the kids are given pirate hats,and the journey was about half an hour,board at the car park where the information building is,or just ask at info office,well worth a ride on...

It's not really far from us, 20-25mins maybe, so I don't know why it took us so long to come here. Nice little shops, brilliant chippy, very beautiful park with a great swing park, overall really nice. Looking forward to coming back and visiting the museums.
