Simply Groups are pleased to announce our attendance at the Tourism & Attractions Show to be held in Ironbridge, Shropshire.

This is the ‘Regional Showcase for Shropshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire, The Midlands and North & Mid Wales’.

The venue, Enginuity, is a hands-on museum exploring the technology behind industry and is one of the 10 museums that are located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Ironbridge Gorge.

The Gorge, formed by the Severn river is spectacular in itself, while each museum celebrates different aspects of the Industrial Revolution. Visitors to the show will be able to explore the other museums at Ironbridge after their visit to the exhibition and will also have a ticket to revisit the site at a later date. This will include the chance to visit the renowned Blists Hill Victorian Town, a recreation of an East Shropshire mining town in around 1900.
