My son has thoroughly enjoyed his afternoon at the forge today. The instructions, assistance and advice he was given was clear and encouraging. The items he was helped to make were interesting, utilising various techniques, but were not excessively challenging. This resulted in him feeling accomplished, capable and very proud of what he achieved. He's come out so happy with his creations, as well as the joy that the process of making them has given him. He would love to come back soon!

We have just spent the most enjoyable morning learning some basics of black smithing. A fabulous experience & appreciate the skills of the black smith. Fabulous value & came home with some wonderful memories we made. Ryan was brilliant. Thank you.

I would absolutely recommend Chain Bridge Forge as an experience. I turn 40 this year and doing some actual blacksmithing is part of my bucket list, so was perfect. There was a life to the museum, people coming in for actual iron work to be done! Ryan was a superb guide and begot for how to actually work iron. I WILL be going back to do some more work. In the meantime I'm off to toast marshmallows with my personally handmade toasting fork 😊.
