Although the bridge is undergoing renovation, the town of Ironbridge is really well worth a visit. It is a beautiful spot by the river, with quaint houses, two museums, interesting shops to potter in and several places to eat. We had a coffee and cake...More

Stayed in Ironbridge. A beautiful little village with lovely walks along the river. The bridge, the focus of the town cannot be viewed due to restoration.

The reason for my visit to Shropshire was my desire to see the bridge. One part of me was disappointed by the experience as the gorge museum was shut with no explanation as to why. Then the bridge was wrapped up and covered in scaffolding....More

We went to visit the Ironbridge but it is undergoing some serious renovation work so it is “shrink wrapped “ to protect both the workers and passers by. There is a walkway with viewing access to see how the work is being carried out but...More
