Accommodation Description:

The Shakespeare Inn in Telford is a traditional Inn that offers comfortable Bed & Breakfast accommodation. The Inn itself offers a variety of ales and an extensive menu.

The Shakespeare Inn is over 200 years old situated in the heart of the world heritage site of the Ironbridge Gorge, and within easy walking distance to the Coalport China Museum, the Blists Hill Museum, the Maws Craft Centre and the famous Ironbridge itself. Spectacular and beautiful, Ironbridge Gorge offers a unique chance to step back in time to an age when the pounding of steam hammers and the clatter of horse hooves was commonplace. Today 10 amazing museums pay tribute to the proud history of the area, whilst a new breed of creative arts and industries have evolved within Gorge all adding to this unique offering available to visitors to Ironbridge & Shropshire of all ages, so there is much to do in the area.

We are a member of CAMRA and offer an extensive range of ales at the inn. All of the rooms that we offer are en suite and each has a good range of facilities, including televisions, tea & coffee making facilities, bottled water, hair driers and WiFi internet access.
