These few days in Ironbridge were a replacement after our December 2020 Christmas Market Cruise had been cancelled due to Covid. Through one of the online agencies we booked a house to share with our friends. The day before we left for Ironbridge our chosen house was swapped by the owners to another property due to issues with the water system.
Monday 25th April 2022
The town house was a little further out of Ironbridge and was reached through the car park of the Best Western Hotel. The good news was that we had no issues parking two cars. The cleaner was still there when we all arrived, so we dumped the cars and walked back into Ironbridge to get some lunch.
This pub/restaurant/hotel was where we had stayed on our first visit to Ironbridge. The food was as good as remembered!
To reach the townhouse and the car parking we had to go through this arch at the side of the Best Western car park.
After lunch we walked back and unpacked the cars.
Ironbridge Gorge Museums’ Passport
The gorge has a lot of museums to visit. After our earlier visit we knew to buy a “passport” that would allow us to go into all the open museums at no extra charge.
We walked to the Museum of the Gorge and picked up our passports. Unfortunately the museum itself was closed because earlier in the year the River Severn had overflowed and flooded it.
Views of Ironbridge in the afternoon
This visit the bridge itself was thankfully free of scaffolding.
