2011 is a very special year for the Ironbridge Gorge celebrating 25 years since it was designated one of the first UK sites to be awarded World Heritage status in 1986, recognising its unique contribution to the birth of the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century, the pioneering impact of which was felt worldwide.
The surviving built and natural environment, with its museums, monuments and artefacts, including the world's first Iron Bridge, built in 1779, are a wonderful tribute to the areas's outstanding contribution to the history and development of industrialised society.
The ten award-winning museums at Ironbridge Gorge, located in a beautiful valley beside the River Severn in the heart of England, are a fascinating attraction for both groups and families, offering unique, interactive, hands-on experiences, bringing history vividly and dramatically to life.
They include the Jackfield Tile Museum where visitors can have a go at decorating their own tiles, the Coalport China Museum with demonstrations explaining the history and techniques involved in china making and the Blists Hill Victorian Town where guests can travel back in time 100 years to experience the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a recreated Victorian Town.
Discover Travel & Tours Birthplace of the Industrial Revolution tour for groups takes in Ironbridge Gorge and the Black Country Museum, combined with time in Birmingham to visit the famous Jewellery Quarter or go shopping in the Bull Ring.
