Once described as ‘the most extraordinary district in the world’, the Ironbridge Gorge is a fascinating and beautiful place to visit. Nowhere is the ‘Enginuity’ of man more artfully expressed than in the graceful lines and soaring arches of the world’s first cast iron bridge.
A fun and informative day out is guaranteed as there are ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums with something of interest for all ages. Whether you are interested in fine china and its manufacture, decorative tiles, interactive design and technology or life in a Victorian town it’s all to be found in this World Heritage Site.
