Interesting cares over looking the river.

Good breakfast deals. Not all have toilets. Can go down narrow steps to river at end of bridge. Shops on both sides.

Pulrney bridge looks good from the water, when you are on it it is just a street with shops, some of which are great! I found that to go down the steps to the water's edge, walk away and then look back is amazing. Very iconic!

The bridge is quite unusual in that it is lined with shops, but this makes for an interesting historical picture. The gardens and walkways under the bridge are beautiful and the weir is quite stunning. The seagulls are a real pest as they are quite bold and will fly at you and steal food from your hand.

I love this bridge that pretends to be a normal street - really hard to believe it's in Britain for some reason. Had a coffee under the bridge watching 12 tiny duckilings take their first swim!

A lovely sight. Beautiful area to walk day or night. Found it enjoyable to walk in the afternoon or even in the evening after dinner. Worth visiting

I loved this bridge. I have a thing for bridges I've realized on my many trips. This one has aged beautifully and they have some great coffee shops near it. So have a nice afternoon tea while you look above at the bridge, and below at the water. It was a great way to end my day trip in Bath.

Enjoyed being in an historic area, good views and liked the restaurant with view of the weir. A good attraction but I was taking more notice of the weir.

Very cool old bridge where there are cafés and like on the actual bridge. Lots of old world charm. It is a great photo op and I took way to many pictures of the bridge and area. Walking around downtown has many cool places along the river, up by the Kennet canal, and my fav was in the big view... More

Always looked good in pictures but on visiting it's a little disappointing, I was expecting huge and majestic, but it isn't!!!
