Spectacular and beautiful, just two words which sum up the Ironbridge Gorge. Known worldwide as the birth of the Industrial Revolution during the 18th century.


Today it is very much a tourist centre, with numerous museums. The Ironbridge Visitor Centre, Museum of Iron, Blists Hill Museum, The Tar Tunnel and Coalport China Museum give you plenty to see. On a nice day enjoy a pleasant stroll along the banks of the Severn, then a pie and a pint in one of the many pubs located here.
