Good place to take pictures and enjoy some pastries from the shop on the bridge. Feels like you step back in time waking over this bridge.

Visited the bridge in the morning; with the winter sun rising from the opposite side of the bridge, it certainly makes the bridge looks a lot more stunning! You can go for a riverside walk along the river avon to have a clearer view of Pulteney Bridge.

Walking onto and along the bridge one didn't think it was a bridge with its shops and quaint coffee pastry cafes until you arrive at the end and to the left you see the weir ..... Oh it's beautiful and then to look back towards the bridge it has the wow factor , it is truly beautiful

Wander slowly across the Avon, up to the museum at the end. The cake shop on the corner is worth a visit too.

Good to see how the town has built up around this old structure. Good for a day out to see the town of Bath and various attractions it has to offer.

Often compared to other shop lined bridges like the Ponte Vecchio in Venice, it pales by comparison. The view from the weir south of the bridge is charming but the north side looks rather dumpy and unimpressive. Walk along it and there are indeed shops but frankly, you barely get a sense of them or you being on a bridge... More

Anyone that want to visit Bath have to have a picture of them standing in front of Pulteney Bridge with the River Avon flowing over the weir. Look across to the Bath Rugby Club or even take a cruise down the river to Bathampton.
