Lovely place to stop and look at, shame it was tipping it down from the time we arrived until we left! Its much better in lovely weather and sunshine but great photo opportunity.

A really lovely view from the bridge which leads to a walk along the canal. There is a lovely coffee shop between the bridge and the canal. Definitely a must to visit.

There is an Orvis on the corner---I feel like that's all I need to say. Seemed like a lot of tourist shops and its a small bridge. If you are in Bath, you will probably end up there because the town is small but it's not worth an extra trip.

A lovely spot in Bath not to be missed. I believe that the shops across the bridge make it unique in Britain (similar to the Rialto Bridge in Venice) and the weir beside it makes for lovely scenic photos. The first shop on the bridge (on the right hand side coming from the city side) is a lovely little café... More

Seen this attraction in so many occasions through the years and it never dissapionts. The history and the scenery are just spectacular. I just make a focal point for every vist to Bath. Many other local attractions and businesses to see and visit near to the bridge so a highly recommended visit.

I wanted to see this as it is such a rare example of a bridge that has shops on it. You don't get quite the same feeling when on the bridge, but the shops are interesting and varied with views down the river.

Watching the boats coming through on the river is relaxing and got some nice photos of the bridge. Walking across the bridge is wider than expected so lost some of the feeling of being on a bridge, nice variety of shops.

The Pultney bridge is more like a street lined by cafés and shops. It does not overlook the river and can easily be missed.
