Ironbridge Passport from £25pp

The most cost effective way to visit the collection of museums is with an annual passport that offers unlimited access to all ten Ironbridge Museums within a 12 month period, (t&c’s apply).  Whilst the option remains to pay a daily admission charge for each attraction, for those either planning to visit a number of settings or a return visit later in the year, you’ll quickly find the savings build.

I have to say that this is one of the most flexible family passport we’ve come across that includes all your children & grandchildren!  For double deals take advantage of a 10% saving off standard passport tickets when you buy online with passes available from £50 per family.  With both 1 & 2 adult family passes available, this pass takes account of changing family structures in today’s world where ‘all your children’ includes;

  • Your grandchildren, under the age of 18, living with your son or daughter.

    My husband and i are coming to Ironbridge first 2 weeks in august. I am registered disabled and my husband is my carer we re both over 60. I understand we can get a discount but dont know the cost or how to apply. We would be greatfull for any information. Thank you .

    • Hi Elaine, visitors with disabilities plus one carer are offered 50% off single site entry, (should you wish to enter just one Ironbridge Gorge attraction) or 50% off individual passport tickets, (excludes family passports).

      • Could you tell me cost of passport ticket for us. Do i pay on day or can i book in advance. Thank you

        • Hi Elaine, an individual annual Ironbridge Gorge passport is priced at £25pp or £15pp a child/student and available to purchase on the day. There are further discounts available on family tickets & seniors plus online discounts if you book online in advance.

  2. anna jones says:

    hi we are thinking of visiting in august. i am trying to work out the best price for two adults and two children. we would like to visit as many of the museums as possible. if i was to buy the free child passport would this allow all four of us access to all ten museums without having to pay any other entry fees?? hope you can help.
    regards anna.

      Hi Anna, thanks for your query regarding Ironbridge Museums. The free child passport works best when purchased for a party of 1 adult & 1 child as this free offer is only available when bought in conjunction with a full price single adult passport. Worth looking out for the 2 adult family Ironbridge passport that is currently priced at £68 that offers entry for 2 adults and all your children, (under 16’s) that offers 1 visit at all 10 Ironbridge Museums including Blists Hill Victorian Town & Enginuity that are both popular attractions for children.

    Although my wife and I have both lived in the midlands all our lives we have never visited the Victorian Town and so thought I would check the cost of tickets. If the price for pensioners was £7.50 we would have made a day of it tomorrow however £25 for the two of us plus buying meals and drinks makes it an expensive day out and so something we unfortunately will have to miss.

    • Hi, that’s sad to hear – one to consider maybe the annual passport that is currently priced at £21.50 per person over the age of 60 years as this offers entry to all 10 Ironbridge Gorge museums, (including Blists Hill Victorian Town) over a full 12 months period. If you can visit a number of times during the year, you may find this more value for money. All the best, Liz

      • John Wilkes says:

        Was going to come to Bliss Hill with two other relatives from Kent.
        Our time is limited for the stay and so is our money.
        So we will have to give it a miss when we come to the West Midlands.

        • Hi John, that’s a shame you can’t squeeze in a brief trip to Blists Hill into your itinerary as it is such a lovely place to visit. I’m not sure if you are aware that you can simply purchase tickets for Blists Hill Victorian Town only rather than the Ironbridge Passport, (that offers entry to 10 Ironbridge museums) with discounts available for those over 60 years. Other cheap ticket options including redeeming Tesco clubcard vouchers for tokens, picking up free entry under the National Art Pass scheme or securing discounted entry with English Heritage membership if any of these apply to you? Have a lovely stay on the West Midland, Liz
