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!!

So much to see and do. Wildlife and a few local shops. Sunny day with fresh tastey chips from the chippy near the Ironbridge before going to the Tar Tunnels

Ironbridge is a place that was ever on my radar, very pretty place and certainly has a place in history. Bridge and museums well worth a visit, do get the passport if you are in the area for more than a few days.

The bridge in itself it's an important piece of the English Industrial revolution and it's worth visiting even though it's just a bridge! The village with the same name is quintessentially English, with lovely little shops, coffee houses and eateries.
