How to get here

The Ironbridge Gorge is in Shropshire, 5 miles (8km) south of Telford Town Centre and is well signposted on all major roads.

CLICK HERE TO PAY FOR PARKING

Exit M54 junctions 4 or 6. Follow the brown and white tourism signs for Ironbridge Gorge.

There are three approach roads into the Ironbridge Gorge. Take the appropriate route for the museum of your choice:

There are scheduled roadworks adjacent to Blists Hill Victorian Town from 19 October until early November. Access to Blists Hill Victorian Town will be via a signed diversion route during these works. 'Access to Blists Hill' will be indicated on diversion signage. You can see more about these diversions, along with an interactive map, at the Telford & Wrekin Council website.

The main roads through the centre of Ironbridge (The Wharfage, Tontine Hill and High Street) will be closed to traffic from 27 October until 18 December. A diversion route will be signposted. Check out the Telford & Wrekin Council website for more information.

MUSEUM CAR PARKS
We use Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) at all of our Museum-owned car parks. We record the registration numbers of vehicles entering and leaving a site and calculate a charge based on the length of stay. The tariff is £1 per hour up to a maximum of £5. There is a 30 minute free period to allow pick-up & drop-off.

You can pay for parking with a debit/credit card at machines on-site or online within 48 hours of your visit.

Visitors who spend £20 during their visit (excl admission or special event tickets) will get a one-off exemption code allowing free parking for that visit. You must use your exemption code before leaving the Museum, online exemption will not be possible.

All vehicles entering these car parks will be subject to charges including motorbikes, coaches, blue badge holders & campervans.

Charges apply 24 hours a day except at Coalport China Museum where free overnight parking is available (6pm-8am).

Our car park charges are managed by Park with Ease. Park with Ease will enforce parking charges and will issue fixed penalty notices in the event of non-payment.

LOCAL AUTHORITY CAR PARKS
Museum of The Gorge, Station Yard, the Square, Waterloo Street and Dale End Park car parks are Local Authority Pay & Display car parks and a separate ticket is required.

Motorhome parking is available at all museums, excluding Broseley Pipeworks.

By Motorhome

We welcome Motorhomes at most of our sites. Broseley Pipeworks only has a small car park, so is not suitable for Motorhomes. None of our car parks have height barriers.

Motorhomes can park over multiple bays, but we request that they respect other users and park as efficiently as possible, as some of our car parks have limited spaces.

Some of the roads around the Gorge are narrow and uneven, so care should be taken, however the roads are used by coaches and buses so should be suitable for most motorhomes.

Please note that local authority car parks in the Gorge charge for the number of bays used. Standard parking charges apply at Museum car parks.

Motorhomes can be parked in most Council car parks. Check local notices for details and advice.
