A great selection of varied attractions and all pretty close to each other. Best value is to buy the annual ticket, pays for itself after just visiting a couple of the attractions. Most enjoyed was the village.

Ironbridge village is a small quaint village, with a number of gift shops cafes and restaurants, but mainly the famous Iron Bridge. Well worth a stroll across to the old toll house. Sit in a cafe overlooking the wonderful River Severn. Stroll through the little shops, but most of all look forward to a visit to the many and varied... More

Oh my life your spoilt for choice with the number of museums on offer within a small area. The museum passport you can buy saves lots of money and is a great idea. We will be taking our Daughter there as its great for children and adults alike. Jackfields tile decorating is a great activity for the whole family.

I have just returned from visiting the world heritage site of Ironbridge in Shropshire. This is the fifth time in the past fifteen years that I have been to this area as I love it so much. Apart from the beautiful Shropshire hills, the main attraction for me and my family has been the Ironbridge gorge museums. They are absolutely... More

Wonderful scenery and stunning places to visit. Ironbridge itself was lovely and the bridge was stunning. Managed to get around with my walking stick, but would be difficult to get around if you were wheelchair reliant, especially following rain, as the car park is not tarmacked and it was very sticky. Also be on the look out for Mountain Bikers,... More

All told there are about 10 attractions in the Iron Bridge Gorge so you will need at least a couple of days to do them justice. The Blists Hill Village can take the best part of a day alone. The annual pass may seem expensive but when you consider what you get then I think that it is worth it.... More
