A cute little bridge overlooking a pretty water feature. It is near a small little park and is worth a walk by if you're in the area. There are shops actually along the bridge and a few restaurants too.

This bridge looks amazing day and night from a few hundred yards away but once you are on the bridge you wouldn't really notice it was a bridge as it is just like any shopping street from the pavement.

The peaceful scenery of the weir, the long stroll along the river, the sound of the water and postcard picturesque of the whole is just amazing

Having been to the Ponte Vechio in Florence, we were keen to experience Pulteney Bridge and we were not disappointed. From the road side as you walk across with the shops enclosed, it is interesting but once around the corner and looking back on the bridge with the Weir below and the flowing water, what an experience. Well worth a... More

The park near by is good for a picnic and the walk along the river is lovely on a beautiful day like yesterday

I first heard of, and saw the bridge while on a tour bus ride, so we went there on foot later. I've never seen a bridge like it before. It has shops and cafes on it, and is a real treat. We stopped for a short refreshment break in a coffee shop there, and enjoyed ourselves watching the tourism world... More

Nice bridge to take photos of, on the bridge itself though it is just a line of shops. Views from the cafe windows on the bridge looked good but they were all rather full so couldn't get in.

Sorry, this simply doesn't compare to some of the places it's compared to like the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Yes, it's a line of shops on both sides of a bridge across the river, but the shops that are there don't seem anything you won't see in any other shopping area of the town. I wouldn't go out of my...
