Fantastic place. Not over commercialized, in fact hardly at all. Walk among the houses, the riverside, the trees and paths, and off into the distance to the many museums nearby. Blists Hill is great, and the Tar Tunnel a must see. So much to do, I'd love to go back soon.

Particularly enjoyed visiting the Victorian Town and the Iron Bridge. Had a lovely evening at the Coalbrookdale Inn - Victorian Pub in the village. Landlord so friendly and food excellent value for money.

It was our first visit to Ironbridge and found the place very interesting and steeped in history. Wish we had more time to explore the surrounding area. Food was great everywhere we went.

Ironbridge Gorge is a World Heritage Site. There are many historic places to visit which explain the history of the area; the inventors, engineers, crafts people who were involved in the Industrial Revolution.

Best of Ironbridge

We used the bus rather than the car to go between the museums as recommended by the B&B owner. It was much easier and very reasonable.

Pick up the wad of leaflets about the many walks and follow what the leaflets say. They are up-to-date and pretty accurate.

The heritage of this place is touching and its preserved very well in modern times. A gem of a town !

D'arcy's is a must for Mediterranean cuisine for an affordable price.

The Gorge and River Severn including the bridge, of course.

Cradle of the industrial revolution

yes, quite environment and nature

Great scenery and lovely walks
