A Beautiful little town to laze away the day. The Bridge is exactly that and you need to do a little research to understand why it is so special. Pop into the toll house on the bridge where the friendly staff will be happy to...More

Read other reviews first. If your prime reason to go is to see the bridge then it is basically completely covered until early 2019 for repairs. Also the toll house is closed. Nice town and river with nearby shops and food outlets etc. Parking rates...More

Booked a hotel close by so the River Severn was the scenery. Unfortunately, no one had told us that the Ironbridge was clad in scaffolding until end of 2018 at least. Just a little dissapointing not to see it but an excuse to return to...More

The river valley is so beautiful there and the place, that it didn't matter that the bridge is currently packed in scaffolding. We viewed it like a Cristo Art Work! :) The little exhibition in the tollhouse makes up for it too, together with the...More

The whole valley is nowadays a beautiful place, largely due to an American gent who saw the potential in the wreckage from the Industrial Revolution. Many good museums to visit on one ticket - or join CADW and get in free!

It would have been really good if we knew this before walking from Blists. You cannot see the bridge. Wait until it has been restored
