The bridge has buildings on each side and, if you hadn't observed the river before walking down the street, you could be forgiven for not realising that you were actually crossing it.

We came to Bath to see the Roman Baths, and happened upon the view of the Pultney Bridge - which was so beautiful and quaint and epitomized small town europe. It crosses over the Acon, and is complete with little shops to enjoy as you walk across it - or just enjoy the view from the park/gardens. Either way is... More

You can walk along the river bank with great views of the weir which is very pretty. The bridge is very big and lined with shops in the style of many old bridges of which few good examples survive today and this is one of the better ones. This is very close to the Roman baths and pump room and... More

Every time I walk past, I have to stop and admire the view. Seagulls bathing or heading to the ledges to roost, people sitting outside at The Boater, the boats, the weir. Just perfect.

So romantic and peaceful ! It gives you great view wherever you scroll along the Bridge. Best to walk down for a riverside walk via the little passage on Argyle Street.

Pultney Bridge spans the river Avon it the centre of the city. The Avon flows along side the Pultney Gardens where people spend an hour or two soaking up the sun in such a beautiful setting. The river flows under Pultney Bridge down over the famous Horseshoe Weir and along the tranquil gardens and off through the city and ending... More

What a spectacular site in the centre of a city a must see! The combination of the bridge and river is a spectacular site. I even engaged my iPod to capture it.

I remember seeing the weir years ago and always wanted to delve into it's history more. Unfortunately didn't have time for a river trip but sitting drinking a beer on Pulteney Bridge overlooking the weir was very calming.

A pretty little bridge, best viewed from the river. It's got shops and cafés on it and you wouldn't know it was a bridge when you are on it. It is also tiny. At the city end of the bridge, walk along the river and look back to see it. One of the best views is from Parade Gardens (1.20... More
