Access to the exhibition in the Tollhouse is limited.

Stroll in historic footsteps on one of the world’s great bridges.

This beautiful monument stands as one of the greatest symbols of where the Industrial Revolution started. Tourists have flocked here since 1779 to marvel at this extraordinary structure that dominates the small town that takes its name. 

In autumn 2017, English Heritage embarked on their largest ever conservation project, preserving the Iron Bridge for the future. The conservation work involved repairing cast iron elements, conserving the masonry, resurfacing the deck, and cleaning the entire structure and repainting in its original red-brown colour. 

The following facilities and rules apply at this attraction:

  • Shopping available
