IRONBRIDGE VICTORIAN ADVENTURE DAY


Blists Hill, Ironbridge, Shropshire
 

10.00 Depart Telford

Then wander through the streets of the town past working factories, shops and cottages to the Forest Glen, an exquisite Victorian Tea Room.

11.30 Join the Victorian townsfolk as they go about their daily lives in the small community at the end of Queen Victoria’s reign. Fund a cure for ‘drunkenness’ in the chemist, talk about the ‘latest’ Parish fashions in the Drapers and discover how Victorians crafted the household objects of the day.

12.30 Enjoy a traditional Shropshire pint and a Victorian lunch at the New Inn Pub.

14.00 Drive through the World Heritage Site of the Ironbridge Gorge and cross the world’s first Iron Bridge and enjoy the beautiful setting where the Industrial Revolution began.

14.30 Scenic drive with views of the River Severn to Jackfield Tile Museum. Here, you can wander through the original gas-lit trade show room, galleries and period room setting where you can see, touch and even walk on magnificent British tiles.
