Visit Ironbridge eNewsletter
The Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site looks forward to welcoming you this Olympic year...
The beautiful town of Ironbridge on the banks of the River Severn is just a stone's throw away from Much Wenlock, the picturesque market town which has hosted the Wenlock Olympian Games since 1850, the same Games which led to the rebirth of the modern Olympics in Athens in 1896.
The Ironbridge Gorge was the birthplace of The Industrial Revolution 300 years ago, and this incredible valley is still amazing visitors today. Visit the world's first cast iron bridge built in 1779, ten museums, award winning restaurants, individual shops, guest accommodation and a host of attractions.
Leave your car at the new Ironbridge Park and Ride with buses every 12 minutes. It's FREE during the summer holidays and will take you into the heart of the World Heritage Site!
