My husband and I enjoyed a wet morning here. It provides an interestingly different experience. Nice cafe.

A most amazing place surrounded by 100 acres of ground with massive and beautiful iron statues. Free entry and can only imagine how attractive it would be to wander around the gardens admiring all the works of art. In less friendly weather, retreat to the cafe for lovely cakes and refreshments served by wonderful, friendly staff. There's a lovely indoor shop to mosey around and take home a souvenir or two. Check outside too where there is open air seating and a pottery shop.

Although we probably picked the worst day of the year weather wise to visit, it was still a pleasant day. Entry was easy and where given the option of becoming members to receive a discount card (we’re local so made sense). And although it was raining heavily the outdoor area was still easy enough to walk around without getting muddy, though if your unsure on your feet I’d suggest taking care.

Will visit again.

An absolutely amazing place to visit! I heard about the Knife Angel on Facebook a while ago and was impressed by this wonderful piece of art, made from 100,000 knifes that were handed in to the Police as a statement against knife crime. Didn’t know it was made and display at the British Ironworks, until we arrived, so this was a welcomed bonus! Loads of fantastic iron sculptures, gift shop and cafe. Unfortunately, they did not sell any mini Knife Angels, as I would have definitely bought one!
