The Iron Bridge is a bridge that crosses the River Severn in Shropshire, England. Opened in 1781, it was the first major bridge in the world to be made of cast iron, and was greatly celebrated after construction owing to its use of the new material.

Excellent Service! Beautiful setting...very private cottage sleeps 4..perfect for a couples get away! Definitely will be back!
Ironbridge us a lovely little place with plenty to see in the area. Good places to eat. Quirky shops. The bridge is under maintenance at the moment though.
Sadly the bridge was completely covered with scaffolding for extensive restoration. Unfortunately, there was no note of this anywhere on the usual tourist sites before we decided to divert off our journeys course to visit. Nice little surrounding village/town though (where barely any businesses accept payment cards).
We came here for the weekend. It is a very beautiful place. The bridge is currently being worked on, but it will be very good when complete. There is a walkway across the side that lets you see what they are doing with the bridge, which is fascinating. The village is small, but a very pleasant place to look around, and the are lots of places to eat or drink near the river. We would recommend a visit here to anyone!
Great historical small town. Lots to see and lovely on a sunny day. The only negative is that it's covered over for repairs at present. I'm sure it will be worth it though and we have a responsibility to care for these landmarks.
The bridge is currently being refurbished and is completely covered in sheeting. So be aware if you intend to visit. Very nice pub the White Hart
Fantastic place for all, there are lots to do no matter what your interest. My wife and I found the museums to be brill and the walks of an evening along the seven way were grand. I have problems walking but the paths were of the main quite level. All in all a positive experience.
Always lovely in all seasons. Lot of parking especially if park and ride for the gorge connect buses are used. Plenty of pubs and tea shops as well as the history
Can only give 4 stars as the bridge is undergoing complete renovation and is totally covered in sheeting, you can walk down a passageway and look through the boarding and see the work in progress. The toll house is open at the far end of the bridge and is worth a visit. I will return next year to see the completed bridge and then it will no doubt be worth 5 stars.
Love love love it here. Such a beautiful place to visit and so quiet. Although it is small it offers a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants all of which I have tried and love. Especially moonshine and fuggles! Amazing little shop and the staff are out of this world, nothing is too much trouble for them.
Great to see the conservation work by English Heritage of the bridge in progress. It's shrouded in scaffolding but there is a platform from which you can observe the work. Work will be completed November 2018.
Shame it was all wrapped up but repairs are necessary to keep it for the future. Small scaffold bridge to the side gave close up view of the structure and joints of the bridge. Very interesting construction. The guides at the bridge were very helpful and very knowledgeable
Fantastic historical landmark. First cast iron bridge in the world and it is beautiful. Toll keepers cottage also worth a visit and is free. If you park on the bank opposite the village you can walk across and visit the collection of very interesting shops. There is an ice cream shop, a pork pie shop that also sells hot pasties. There is also a fantastic bookshop a few doors up on the right that is worth a visit.
Lovely atmosphere, great views of the river and the Iron bridge and done fantastic shops pubs and restaurants. As a biker I like to look at all the motorbikes, odd great cars and generally soak up the atmosphere whilst walking about or sipping on a coffee. Good parking, but, be warned it gets busy in the summer! If your in a wheelchair or unsteady on your feet it can be very difficult as it it hilly and a bit uneven. What with all the above and about nine or ten fantastic museums in the vicinity there is plenty to do and see, for all the family!
