It's a beautiful piece of architecture and a part of history. It's a lovely town and we stopped off here on our way home from holidaying in North Wales. The car park we used was next to the bridge and was £1.60 for up to 2 hours. This was plenty of time to look around, take pics and grab some... More

Always wanted to walk on The Iron Bridge - and it was fantastic to finally do it. So much history in the area but for me the Bridge is the highlight. Highly recommended!

When we went at the end of July our experience was spoilt by the constant noise from quad bikes and very loud motorbikes whizzing up and down the road. Not much to do other than take pictures of the bridge.

I'll admit when I found out our tour was stopping to visit Ironbridge I wasn't totally sold. However it was one of the loveliest places we visited. The town was cute and the people friendly. The river and bridge were beautiful to photograph. The trail along the river had additional opportunities to snap beautiful pictures of interesting archways and flowers.

If you don't do anything else in Ironbridge then you have to visit the actual iron bridge itself. The views are spectacular, you can walk across the river Severn on it. A must do for everyone.

My history of Ironbridge goes well back beyond the premature demise of the railway station adjacent to the bridge. Living in the south east, annual visits to this area are always enjoyable. Visiting with children or not, The Ironbridge Gorge Museum, can take almost a day in itself (the knowledge of farthings is helpful!). Ironbridge is not a large village... More

The Ironbridge built in 1779, the river views and walks, which are lovely on a summers day. The Toll House is worth a visit too.

At first view, from the car park, I was disappointed, then the whole bridge came into view..what a brilliant piece of engineering especially when one considers when the bridge was constructed..the Severn gorge can be a difficult place to be especially during flooding but the Ironbridge stands tall and proud..there are many viewing points including from underneath..

Quaint little town near Telford, famous for its Museums. We went in October and the weather was brutal...but we enjoyed the trip anyway..visited most of the museums. Picturesque.
