Nothing to see at present as the bridge is undergoing major renovation so it's all covered up with just a pedestrian walkway available.

Don't waste your time or £1.60 on the car park, there is NOTHING to see, until AT LEAST October 2018. It is covered over whilst work is being completed. Nothing mentioned on the Ironbridge website/s - POOR

Didn't get to see it despite driving doubt past it s it was covered in tarpaulin. The shops looked pretty good though although as it was the usual rubbish weather it was reading so we didn't stop. Looks like a lovely town though!

A well worthwhile visit to the tollhouse by walking across the bridge although the bridge itself is now covered for ongoing repairs that will last until mid-2019

I visited the Ironbridge in 2012 and I had a wonderful time walking across it, taking in the views and the breeze. My WiFi said she'd like to live in the town, also called Ironbridge, but it's very expensive. Nevermind, we visited again in January...More

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
