Do make the effort to explore this bridge. This world heritage area is worth a stay. The history of Ironbridge's past is summed up by its beautiful bridge. The toll house could be improved though.

The Ironbridge represents an important time in history and is somewhat iconic. The Ironbridge and Toll house are hardly going to fill your day but there is lots more to see and do in the area.

If you want to know about when, how it was constructed, the materials that were used in its construction and how much it cost to build The Iron Bribge. The Tollhouse on the other side of the bridge is well worth a visit, it gives you the knowledge of the bridge. Many years ago the bridge used to be open... More

Some years ago I travelled 50 miles to see The Iron Bridge on a summer's day. It was well worth the drive. I have been back to Ironbridge many times since then and always admire the bridge. Apart from the bridge itself there is a lot to see in the area with interesting museums, teashops and some decent pubs. The... More

It is a truly historic and beautiful bridge that was the first to use iron for the structure. There are many places to go for afternoon tea too!

There is an original sign up high on the wall of the toll house showing the cost of taking sheep etc over the bridge, well worth a read. The bridge is a fantastic piece of engineering. Well worth a trip over the bridge

Spent a whole day at the Victorian village, thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were brilliant, we were lucky enough to go on a Monday when there weren't so many there except one coach and a couple of school trips so could ask lots of questions and have a good look round. Would recommend this trip to anyone of any age... More

This is for anyone who likes a simple visit just to see the engineering and the history of this bridge. You need to allow time to walk under the bridge and of course to walk over it.
