You may be able to stretch a visit to Ironbridge to half a day and it is good to visit, Very pleasant, but at the end of the day it is a bridge and some shops, But if you include some walking it is a great day out. Park down river at Coalport for free, and walk up river to... More

Stopped here on our way to Conwy because it is a world heritage site. A pleasant surprise indeed. The bridge itself is an amazing example of late 18th century engineering and the first use of iron in such a construction. We enjoyed walking over the bridge and visiting the small toll house museum which provides more detailed info about the... More

I did the industrial revolution at school in the 60's and this bridge was obviously well covered in the lessons. It's one of those places that I thought that I would have visited long ago - but have only just got around to it. And I am glad that I did - l hadn't expected the spectacular scenery, nor had...

Everybody seems to know about the Iron Bridge - this is a wonderful construction at he time of the Industrial Revolution. Stand on the centre of the bridge, close your eyes and imagine what it must have been like at this location for the workers and families - we are so lucky! Interesting Toll house and helpful staff. Lovely walks... More

The iconic bridge was beautiful. And it is FREE! Walk around the river to appreciate this masterpiece. Ironbridge is a small town that worth exploring. There are trails to go up and down the Lincoln Hill. Follow the guidance of the pamphlets to visit the interesting historic sites!

Everyone must visit Ironbridge if coming to Telford. The Tollhouse is, as expected, very small but worth seeing. The Bridge is obviously the focul point of the area but there is so much more to see and do. The scenery is amazing. There are dozens of places to eat and drink to suit all pockets and tastes. You will never... More
