The Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site and surrounding area is well serviced with hotels and accommodation. Within the Gorge, the type of accommodation tends to be smaller B&Bs or youth hostels and we advise booking early to avoid disappointment. Just outside the Gorge there is the town of Telford, which has a number of larger hotel chains located in the town centre. With its good transport links, Telford makes a great base to explore the rest of the UK. Take a look at some of our accommodation recommendations below, and visit our travel page for tips on getting around the area.
