The Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage’s Coalbrookdale Campus is situated in the historic Long Warehouse building, next to the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust’s Museum of Iron.

Once within the Ironbridge area, follow the Museum’s signs to the Museum of Iron.

Coalbrookdale is 5½ miles from Telford Central railway station, and 6 miles from Telford Town Centre. Telford is the nearest railway station, and both long-distance and local bus and coach services run to and from Telford Bus Station, which adjoins the railway station.

By road

Telford can be reached from the national motorway network off the M6:

From the South – travel northbound to J10a, which leads to M54, and exit at J4 to travel south and then to the International Centre or J5 for Telford Town Centre.

From the North – travel southbound to J12, which leads to the A5, then travel westbound into Telford and follow signs for Telford Town Centre, as above.

From Telford follow signs for the Ironbridge Gorge, and then the Museum’s signs for the Museum of Iron.

By rail

Long-distance rail travellers should book to Telford Central. Telford is served by local trains from Birmingham New Street, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton. A service of two trains an hour is operated from each of these stations during the working day.

By coach

National Express operates coaches to and from Telford Bus Station. The main National Express enquiry and reservations telephone number is: 08705 808080. Travel enquiries and bookings can also be made through the National Express.


Local taxi firms work a stand directly outside the main entrance to Telford Central station. Visitors to the Ironbridge Institute should ask for the ‘Museum of Iron, Coalbrookdale’ or ‘Enginuity’.
