What a beautiful place. Excellent views from the pavement looking down on to the great view of the weir and the bridge. One of very few bridges in the world that has shops across it. Part of a very beautiful city.

Very pretty bridge full of one of shops and arts and crafts shops. There were also plenty of cafes along the way as well.

When in Rome or Bath as they say, this is of course on the radar to view, stunning piece of architecture, the water flow is a pleasure to watch and the area is beautiful. However as with many things in life, once you have taken in the scenery, taken some snaps, maybe had a coffee in the number of cafes... More

Iconic bridge in the centre of Bath across the Avon river with the Paradise Gardens next door. It is a beautiful place to photograph and to stroll along the Avon. Another good excuse to walk the streets of Bath for a while.

I was absolutely in awe for the amount of water rushing under this bridge. It is absolutely amazing and the sound of it is wonderful. Fortunately we had a clear day albeit it very cold which made it so much better.

It was getting late when we crossed Pulteney Bridge, so we didn't stop at any of the cafe's. It is a lovely place to spend some time, a must for any visitors.

Take pictures of the bridge and the river, walk on the bridge and explore the unique shops. I especially enjoyed the antique map shop.

A lovely view from the river back towards the bridge. A must see if visiting Bath. It is worth looking at the tiny shops on the bridge and even a cake or pastry with a tea in the Café.

All other visitors have commented how beautiful it is and I totally agree. One comment really was that the local authorities should be better able to monitor the behaviours of some Chinese tourists who marked on the walls and sit on the flower decoration (I saw it, which is bad to my view, it was harmful to the site)
