If you approach the bridge from the west of the city, you'd never know it's a bridge, having shops on both sides and looking like a typical street. From "inside" the city, looking at the bridge you see the River Avon and the weir which is one of the best known images of Bath. There are steps down to the... More

Good to be able to see the skills of a bygone age where construction work is concerned. interesting establishments along the road side as you walk over the bridge, or you can take a path/steps down from the bridge to the river walk.

My wife and I went here on a Saturday afternoon. It is a very nice spot to see and you can have a nice walk along the River Avon. The sound of the running water is very relaxing. It is a good place to go.

Lovely to see we walked over the bridge on our way to the Holborne museum, but it is only small and you do not have to stay long.

We always like to view the river and the bridge, usually very tranquil and calm. But for the past week it had been raining non stop. The river was way up it's banks with a tree trunk wrapped around the steps to the down river side of the weir, and the water was raging.

A beautiful area. Best seen from the river side gardens rather than on the bridge where it is very crowded with a narrow pavement.

Pultney Bridge is a very unusual and historic bridge in Bath as is has shops along both sides of it. There are some lovley views of the river from a little cafe on the Bridge.

Pulteney Bridge is worth the stroll if you're in Bath. You may have crossed it before you realise you're on it so it's worth looking at from the park below to see the backs of the lovely shops and cafes that are on it.

I've never liked looking over at the weir and at the back of the shops lining Pulteney Bridge, but my guest was fascinated by it and loved taking photos at different times of day and in different lights, while I was cowering back feeling mesmerised! We enjoyed visiting the shops and restaurants on the Bridge itself and its approaches. Certainly... More
