Paid a visit to Tollhouse, lovely welcome given. Very informative for a free attraction. Opportunity to purchase some for only £2.50 lovely iron souvenirs (we got a lovely little steam engine) for paperweights. Would recommend.

I have never seen the Iron Bridge Gorge or the Iron Bridge or this part of Shropshire, so my wife and I spent 3 days exploring the area. I am interested in Industrial History so this was obviously a treat for me - not sure about my wife. The bridge is in a lovely setting and we parked in a... More

If you are into engineering history this is a great location. Some nice cafes along the street. Tollhouse is OK but small.

It is an amazing piece of engineering and great to see. The toll house exhibition is very explanatory and the attendant was most helpful and informative.

A must see when in the area. This was the first iron bridge built, and therefore has a lot of historic interest. The tollhouse has a small but informative museum.

Well worth a visit to see the bridge and learn about its history. The surrounding cafes, shops and museums make for a great day out and a stroll along the river is well worth it to take in the beautiful scenery.

Ironbridge is a wonderful little town with its cafes and restaurants to ice cream shops, old fashioned sweet shops, fish and chips and many other gift shops. Ironbridge is only a small town but well worth a visit, better if the sun is shining.

The bridge is an awesome testament to the ingenuity of Thomas Telford. We walked to the gorge museum which gives an overview of the area. Entry was included in a passport with other Ironbridge area attractions.
