Didn't find out about this place till afternoon on our last day in Oswestry. There is so much to see & we only had time to go & see 1 museum out of 10. Everything closes at 5. There is plenty places to eat or just a coffee & cake. Will need to come back down to see the rest... More

We planned a two hour stop at Ironbridge George on our way to North Wales. We loved the presentation of the history of the foundation of the industrial revolution. We allowed two hours but we could have easily spent at least three hours. Ironbridge George is full of rich history and the museum is the ideal start to commencing your... More

What a fantastic experience. We visited the Victorian village of Blists Hill and it was a fantastic experience. Even our 13 and 11 year old's were impressed. You must try the fish and chip shop where everything is cooked in beef fat, sounds gross, but they are lovely. There are so many activities going on throughout the day that there... More

As other reviewers have noted, a tile museum may not appear like a very interesting place to visit - you couldn't be more wrong! A fantastic find - stuffed full of interesting tiles and information - the rooms were a real gem - loved the tube mock up! The building itself is worthy of a visit - the architecture is... More

Great info in the gorge and the other attractions in the area (there are 10) worth visiting first perhaps of you are not sure where else you might be interested in. They are very proud of their floods!

The Gorge Museum's are made up of 10 different museums and with an annual pass you can visit them all with the same pass. If you park in one of the car parks you can use that ticket in most of the other museum car parks and at £2 for all day parking this is a bargain in itself. Some... More

This museum is about Tiles ( yes really) and more importantly design. It is split into 4 sections covering design, old room sets gallery etc. On the the same site are a couple of makers that still produce tiles commercially worth a little peek.The museum displays start with graphic displays about the local area with some exhibits that tell the...

We love this place, in the entrance is a large room showing a video that covers the walls. This is in the dark and is sometimes loud so may be a bit scary for younger children. You then pass through a couple of doors and you are out into the open of a Victorian town. These are original Victorian buildings... More
