The Old Post Office is a Grade II listed building just across the road from the Coalbrookdale museums and just up the road from Ironbridge. It is right in the heart of the World Heritage Site and makes a perfect base from which to explore the seat of the Industrial Revolution and the Ironbridge Gorge.

The Museums use a passport ticket system, which on their website says....
''The Annual Passport Ticket represents fantastic value. It allows unlimited daytime admission to all 10 Ironbridge Gorge Museums, during normal opening hours, so you can return as often as you like for one year. If after 12 months you have still not visited particular sites, you can return at any time in the future to make one free visit to the sites that you've missed''
The Old Post Office is on the road to Ironbridge. With the bus stop right outside please expect some traffic noise. There are five steep steps up from the pavement to the house. Please consider this if you have impaired mobility.
