A Few Tips For Enginuity

1. Often the first stop is the extensive water play area that works for children of all ages so worth packing a few spare clothes.

2. Look out for activities running throughout the year that often tie in with school holidays.  You’ll find a range of options from have-a-go workshops providing children with a chance to build their your own creations, (additional charge), or free interactive shows.

3. Great to see an extensive indoor picnic space available right in the middle of the setting that guests are free to use, (whilst there is no cafe on site, there is a vending machine for drinks & snacks).

4. If you are looking for refreshments, why not pop next door to the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron that has a lovely cafe available to the general public & includes free wifi too.

5. Whilst there is a small charge for parking, did you know that this same ticket is then valid at all other Ironbridge car parks, (with the exception of  Ironbridge & the Museum of the Gorge).
