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.

A trip to see the first Iron bridge made, that spans the River Severn, is a nice afternoon out, especially in the summer. The bridge is interesting and I think majestic and kiddies should see what our ancestors made during the industrial revolution that is our heritage. The old toll price sign that shows what it cost to cross the... More

I spent about an hour in Ironbridge. I took pics of the bridge and the village. There are several quaint tea shops to stop and refresh yourself. I liked the gift shops.

Walked from Telford to Ironbridge which was very enjoyable and well worth it. I felt that I could not visit the area without visiting Ironbridge and I am so glad that I did. Some lovely photo opportunities. Visited the Tea Emporium for a hot chocolate, which was delicious and well deserved.
