Stopped over at Ironbridge during a trip to England. I loved the town and the cafe's and pubs offered really good food at reasonable prices. Make sure you visit the Butcher's shop and try the excellent Pork pies. I am told that the Queen picked some up on a visit. There are many photo ops all around and if time... More

A World Heritage site that felt very special. Fabulous architecture and fascinating history! You can walk across the bridge and visit the Toll House. The area around is very pretty with lots of little shops and cafés.

If you are into history, particularly the Industral Revolution this is the place for you. The bridge is the focal point of the whole Worlg Heritage Site, but give yourself plenty of time and look at the whole area. Lots of walking routes too.

Took my sister and her family over the famous iron bridge. Went to the toll house as it's part of our "ironbridge Passport" Lots to read about the architectural designs which I didn't read as I was concerned my children and nieces were being too loud in the one room that is the Toll House. It's very informative, but I... More

An amazing feat of engineering. The Toll house is free with a small exhibition and the volunteer staff are very knowledgeable

Had a short visit to the Iron Bridge to view the bridge built in 1779, there is a museum to visit, Iron Bridge is a lovely place to visit, there is a car park next to the bridge, £1-60 for 2hrs or £2-90 for over 2hrs, we found 2hrs was enough unless you are going to do much more exploring,...

We had purposely stopped over in Telford for two nights, on our way home from North Wales, to visit the Victorian Village at Ironbridge. Unfortunately for us it rained quite heavily all day, not a suitable day for walking around an outdoor attraction. In the afternoon we did venture out in the car to Ironbridge. It was a delight to...
