We are lucky because we live near Ironbridge and we love it. The bridge alone is worth a visit but its a lovely place we take a walk stroll around the shops and plenty of places to get a coffee or a snack.

The first iron bridge in the world, in a wonderful setting in the Ironbridge valley, bridging the river Severn. Lovely pubs and restaurants nearby as well as traditional butcher; well worth a visit to the birthplace of the industrial revolution.

The bridge is amazing given its age (built in 1781). The museum provides some interesting background.

Cannot visit Shropshire without going to see this stunning bridge. Spoilt for choice for tea rooms all reasonably priced.

Visit one of the last remaining iron bridges from the 1700s! Though not disabled-friendly, it isn't a bad trek.

I know these well and have taken visitors. I was surprised that the Bridge wasn't floodlit - this was in Sept. last year.

We did a day trip whilst staying with our daughter in Cannock. A pretty town probably best viewed on a sunny day. Unfortunately the day we chose was dull and wet but nonetheless worth the visit. Car parks within easy reach (50 yards) of the bridge ensure there is not too much traffic going past. We had a nice lunch... More

There is the iron bridge of course and a stroll around, and chat with the very friendly staff, of the Tollhouse tells you all you could ever want to know the history of the bridge. Lots of other museums to visit in the area all in walking distance.
