A great day out for all the family

Iron Bridge, Telford, Shropshire, world heritage site, heritage

A fun and informative day out is ensured at the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums, near Telford in Shropshire.

Set either side of the stunning River Severn valley, they reflect a slice of the history of the Gorge, its people, their lifestyles and their work from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the early 1700s. Whether you are interested in a recreated Victorian town, hands-on interactives, fine china, decorative tiles or the history of iron making, it’s all to be found in this World Heritage Site.

The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017 with a variety of special events throughout the year. A highlight will be the re-opening of the Museum of Iron in time for Easter following a complete refurbishment.
