Ironbridge Gorge & Shrewsbury    
Ironbridge Gorge & Shrewsbury

Come to the heart of the industrial past on a long weekend break to Shropshire. The region is widely considered to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and we discover more on our visit to Ironbridge Gorge Museum, a collection of 10 award winning museums spread along the valley besides the wild River Severn.

    Day 1

Morning departure from your local pickup point as we make our way to Shrewsbury. Set amidst glorious countryside near to the Welsh Borders, it is one of England's finest medieval market towns. The town centre is packed with timber-framed black and white buildings, steep narrow streets and alleyways. The River Severn forms a loop around the town centre offering gentle riverside walks or you can enjoy a trip on the new pleasure boat Sabrina.


    Day 2

Today we visit Ironbridge Gorge Museums beginning with Coalbrookdale Museum. Explore the remains of the water powered blast furnace and discover the revolutionary techniques that made Coalbrookdale the most famous ironworks in the world. We continue on to Blists Hill Victorian Town. Experience life as it was over 100 years ago through the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a recreated Victorian Town. Try some traditionally cooked fish and chips or delicious bread from the bakery. And find out about curious remedies in the Victorian Pharmacy. We end the day at the Iron Bridge & Tollhouse where you can enjoy fantastic views of the Ironbridge Gorge and River Severn.


    Day 3

After a leisurely start to the day we visit Trentham Gardens. Comprising of 725 acres, the award-winning attraction offers stunning gardens, a unique shopping village and a monkey forest. The woodland trail allows you to walk amongst the monkeys and immerse yourself in their everyday antics. See them as they swing from the trees, lounge on the grass and even walk the path straight past you!
