Uncover the area’s rich heritage as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution on a full day visit to the many museums at Ironbridge Gorge. Discover the inland port town of Stourport-on-Severn, built as a result of the opening of James Brindley’s canal. We’ll also take a ride on the Severn Valley Railway and visit Titterstone Clee Hill with its spectacular views and fascinating remains of Dhu stone quarries, railways and coal mines.
