Tar Tunnel

A hidden gem, this is one of the Gorge’s more curious tourist attractions – an eerie brick-lined tunnel dug into the hillside. Stand at the entrance to the Tar tunnel and see the treacle-like bitumen oozing through gaps in the walls. Learn more about the geology of the Gorge and marvel at the problem-solving of early industrialists.

Come and visit our award-winning attractions in a World Heritage Site and the beating heart of the Industrial Revolution, the Ironbridge Gorge is home to some amazing museums that make for an unforgettable experience.
