Ironbridge Gorge Museums

I am very excited about this post, and all further posts relating to what I am about to share with you.

Living back in Telford, I have found that people are very proud of what Telford has to offer, excellent parks, attractions and also the Ironbridge Gorge including all its Museums.

I have been in contact with Ironbridge Gorge Museums and I am very happy to share with you that I have been granted access to all 10 of the Museums to review and share with you all. I have 12 months to access all the museums Ironbridge Gorge has to offer and review about our visits.

When We Intend To Visit

I shall be carefully planning our visits to ensure we can get the most of our visits to each location, from time to time most of the attractions are not running a 100% capacity (due to seasons, and tourists). We have been granted 12 months to visit all 10 attractions so this shall give us more than enough time to ensure we can make the most of our visits.

We shall begin our visits to Enginuity one day in the Half Term holiday as there is an event being run to create Spooky Flappers creatures in the run up to Halloween.

We are really looking forward to visiting all 10 of the Ironbridge Gorge museums and sharing our days out with you all.
