The car park is very small and the museum not much bigger. Also it is very expensive and would have cost the whole family £50 to get in. We could go to Blackpool for that.

This factory was abandoned in 1960 after the death of the owner in 1957. The contents remained untouched until Ironbridge Museums purchased the site in 1991. You are only able to visit twice a day with tours @ 1.30 and 3pm. These tours last 45...More
