About YHA Ironbridge Coalport

This budget accommodation choice is our second option for a break or holiday in Shropshire and is still within the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. Occupying the oldest surviving Coalport china works building, YHA Coalport is perfect for activity breaks, school trips or short weekends away.

For a cultural break, take a short trip to the museum (it’s right next door!) where you’ll see examples of the china which the area is well-known for. There’s plenty to do if you’re the active type – YHA Coalport is a great base from which to explore the area during a walking or sightseeing holiday.

Take a walk along the Shropshire Canal to the 200 year old Tar Tunnel, visit the famous bridge or marvel at the wonders in the science museum, Enginuity! After a busy day exploring the gorge and the surrounding area, you’re going to need a well-earned meal in our licensed café/bar. Have a look at a Sample Menu before you arrive.

YHA members can enjoy free Wi-Fi in social areas at YHA Ironbridge Coalport!

Manager recommends

  • This Gorge offers so much to do for a sightseeing holiday or school trip, but if you're just on a weekend break you must take a walk from Coalbrookdale and step back in time at Blist Hill Victorian Town. On longer walking holidays or activity breaks, a walk into Ironbridge for a well earned drink on the banks of the River Severn finishes off a perfect day.
