I Would say that this is one of my favourite attractions. There are eight different sights-The Village, The Poetry Centre, The Activity centre, The Bridge (of course!) and many more. Go and have a look-It will be well worth your time!

This is just around the corner from me and have visited 100s of times. Plenty of little curio shops across from the bridge, and plenty of pubs/cafes within walking distance. though there is no cash machine down the street and parking can be a pain

The visit was full of lots of information and we took lots of pics was a cold day so was hard to walk with the ice. The bridge is lovely and we went to a couple of museums and had lunch in a little hotel called The half Moon the food was to die for.

The bridge is beautiful and the town a nice place to grab a drink or have lunch. There are several museums and places to visit around, which are more interesting than the bridge itself.

I visited today with a pair of American business colleagues. I am a local and never miss an opportunity to show people this marvel of 18th century risk taking. There is a great page on Wikipedia which any visitor should read - preferably before a visit because the sad thing is that there is so little information available on site.... More

We passed though Ironbridge and took in the bridge. Parking was alongside the river which is restricted in time to under an hour. The bridge was worth experiencing; visitors can stroll over it. The adjacent road on one side has numerous refreshment and curio shops that are also worth perusing. The Toll house was not open when we visited.

A fabulous day out for everyone. Not only is the gorge, with the River Severn running through it, stunning, but the bridge, toll house and several museums along the gorge, make it a fantastic day out. Take a walk by the river, visit the museums and then visit Truffles for coffee or Eley's, to sample their famous pork pies! Then... More

Being a local i'm very proud of the Ironbridge, there may be others that are bigger and grander but this will always be the first!

Beautifully constructed iron bridge set in a lovely scenic, historic location. Toll house interesting history. Nice views from the bridge. Ironbridge itself is worth a walk round to look at the shops, walk by the river and visit the museums.
