Nice stop through on the way to North Wales. It's always friendly and the pork pie shop is good for vegetarians too. Park by the bridge in the council car park for the cheapest rates. The Iron Bridge itself is stunning!

After you leave the M54 follow the BROWN signs to the museums and into Ironbridge. You pass the bridge on your left, travelling down hill. There is a large car park 200 metres past the bridge on your left. You can walk back... More
