Lovely village with quaint shops and cafes and loads of history about the area. Watched some kayakers in a competition on a lovely sunny day.

This is definitely one of the most striking monuments to the art and science of bridge building. Spanning majestically across the river Severn, the bridge provides a great example of how form and function can be blended to create a work of lasting value. There are some nice little shops and restaurants in the near vicinity, including a great tea... More

A truly beautiful bridge in a location that makes it eye-catching, but don'y worry if you miss the toll house museum. It is not worth bothering with.

Visited Ironbridge whilst staying near Telford. It is a very quaint little town with a lot of history surrounding the Ironbridge. Lots of little shops and a few coffee houses. Worth a visit , it has some interesting walks also and a number of interesting musuems within a short distance of Ironbridge which makes for a good day out.

We arrived at this place somewhat late in the evening, but just in time for sunset. The bridge was gorgeous and the town surrounding it made it an even more picturesque visit. Didn't get a chance to tour the Tollhouse, but the bridge alone was worth the short drive from our hotel.

What can you say about an iron bridge? Except that this was the first one made in the whole world! There had never been one built previously so this is a 'must see'.

What a stunning site and marvel of technology. The views are awesome, from the river and hillsides to the bridge itself and the lovely quaint village. A visit is highly recommended

What a day out!!! Very Pretty. We arrived on th far side of the bridge - follow signs to car park and this gave us the best view over the bridge. It could have been the South of France!! All the houses nestled in the gorge side. Plenty of coffee houses and lovely local food. Lovely to walk along the... More
