    Not enough information for disabled and careers eg prices and if wheelchair friendly

    • Hi Lynn, thank you for your feedback, we do appreciate you taking to time to let us know your thoughts. Topdogdays is independent of Ironbridge Gorge Museums and primarily about providing our readers with information about deals and discounts for visitor attractions around the UK.

  2. I have an annual passport can I use it more than once at any of the museum I have already done 8 museums

    • Hi Peter, the Ironbridge Passport is valid for daytime admission to each of the 10 Ironbridge Gorge Museums for 12 months from the date of first use during normal opening hours, Liz

  3. Alex grainger says:

    Can you do an annual membership just for blists hill please

    • Hi Alex, you can opt for a 1 day entry ticket to Blists Hill Victorian Town or an annual passport that offers unlimited entry to all 10 Irnonbridge Museums over a 12 month period, (select events not included). Unfortunately there is no annual membership option for just the Blists Hill attraction. Hope this answers your query, Liz

  4. Good morning.
    I have just signed up for parent plus child annual ticket for £25. The screen changed ever so quickly, I fear that I have purchased TWO tickets at £50, to obviously I dont want. I would be very grateful if you could refund the one.

    I cant seem to be able to locate my E TICKET to take along with me today, I have checked my email… all thats there is the news letter.

    My lad is very excited on visiting there asap, i do hope you can sort this very soon.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Claire, sorry to hear you are having trouble. We at topdogdays are independent of Ironbridge Gorge Museums, (we simply let you know where the deals & discounts are for top visitor attractions), so you would be best contacting Ironbridge Gorge Museums directly with your query. I hope it all works out, Liz

  5. Elaine Davies says:

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. Robert Fox says:

    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
