the architecuture is lovely, and the scenic view spectacular. The way they built the steps in the river ans the effect to monitor water flow etc is brilliant and what a way to catch your eye,.

We enjoyed a very pleasant walkk along the banks of the River Avon to the Pulteney Bridge. Apart from admiring its architecture, the bridge is lined with restaurants and interesting shops and give access to another part of Bath not often visited by tourists.

Very nice area. Shops are not very exciting. Certainly can't compare with Italy and I think the shops on the bridge with the venetian ware is tacky.

the shops on the Pulteney bridge are quaint and the river walk below is gorgeous. It's a great place to relax and listen to the sound of the water rushing over the wier.

Amazing view of the weir and the river avon, perfect spot for photographs and surrounded by georgian architecture. On the other side of the bridge is the boarding point for the river boat tour.

This afforded lovely views of the weir, along with a tranquil riverside walk. The independent shops there reminded me of Rialto Bridge in Venice and one even sold Murano glass jewellery. There was a lovely cafe just down the steps with friendly staff and gorgeous cakes!

Quaint historical bridge. Take the time to have a look from both sides of the river. Also make sure you look into the shops as you are crossing the bridge. Some of the shops are only a couple of metres wide and if they have windows on both sides, you can see straight through to the water. A couple of... More
