I lived in Ironbridge for 20 years and it was really nice to visit again and find my old haunts. The Toll House is the entrance to the whole gorge across the bridge and shouldn't be missed. It gives you an insight into what to expect from the other museums. Best views of the Gorge looking in both directions.

Free attraction, the world's very first iron bridge. A must for all history buffs. The toll house is a mine of information to visitors to the area. Fabulous ice cream available opposite the bridge

If you enjoy just stretching your legs then a walk around this area is always worth a visit just for the stunning views. The bridge can be seen from below and various points along the river - and a pause just to take in the stunning scenery makes this worth the effort.
