The area is steeped in history and the campsite is on the border of a world heritage site. As well as providing the perfect backdrop to explore the museums attached to the gorge we are surrounded by beautiful walks, excellent pubs and riverside activities
Ironbridge gorge has a total of ten museums, five of which are located within a twenty minute walk of Irongorge Camping, including the award winning Enginuity which is a science and technology centre packed with hands-on activities and interactive exhibits. Just a ten minute drive away is Blists Hill Victorian town where you can experience life as it was a hundred years ago. A family pass for all ten museums is available at any museum, and if planned ahead, can be purchased using Tesco reward points.
Ironbridge leisure , provides all the equipment you require for a days fun on the river Severn. Contact them directly to hire Canoes, kayaks or boats. Alternatively, if you do no wish to expend any energy yourself, you could enjoy a couple of hours on an inflatable raft exploring the river with Shropshire raft tours.
Fishing is also available on the river: details can be found on the Ironbridge angling society web site.
With both the Mercian way (NCN route 45) and the Silkin way (NCN route 55) right on our door step, we are in a prime position for you to enjoy the Shropshire countryside. So whether you want to take a ride along a disused railway track above the river Severn to Bridgenorth or enjoy the challenge of riding around the Wrekin, Irongorge camping has it all.
Ironbridge and the surrounding area have a host of bars, pubs, tearooms and eateries. These are a few of our favourites.

Cross the mini round about at dale end by co op, Turn right up Station Road passing under a railway bridge (do not go up Strethill Road as it is a dead end). Continue up the hill until you get to a track with a sign that states “unsuitable for heavy goods vehicles”. Turn left up the track and continue until you get to the large tree stump. Keep left and you will reach a tarmac road. Pass the first house and turn left into the field and up the track. You have arrived.
