Here at the Ironworks we are always on a continual journey to improve every aspect of our site. With so many coaches visiting us every year, we place a lot of importance upon group visitors and love all the positive feedback we receive for going that extra mile!

From start to finish, we always make every effort necessary to ensure that each coach trip is fantastic. We offer a range of completely free services for coach trips including; free parking; dedicated staff to help plan visits and arrange free introductory talks and demonstrations; Forge Café vouchers and a monetary gift for the coach driver; and guidance throughout the trip. Alongside this, we also offer a special discounted group menu and afternoon tea in our famous Forge Café, as well as full access to our renowned, award winning Sculpture Park.

Because of this, we will be entering the 2019 Coach Tourism Awards in hopes of winning the Coach Friendly Attraction and/or Best Dining Experience awards. The Coach Tourism Awards aim to shine a light on the very best of the crop within the coach touring industry. Winning these awards would be an absolute honour and a fantastic testament to all of the hard work spent on ensuring each coach visit is exceptional.

We will keep you updated with more information about our entry and coach trip improvements in the New Year!
