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

I saw the Bridge from the N Parade Rd. Think that it's a must seen when visiting lovely Bath. But...it's not everything that take hours to see and a lot of money to get in to. A view is absolutely free and the weather was great.

I was staying at the lovely Henrietta House Hotel just over Pulteney Bridge so crossed it several times. Walking over it has some lovely shops and cafes - I loved Hampstead Bazaar and the Mosaic Shop. At least one person will tell you during your visit that it is one of only four bridges in the world with shops on... More

This bridge is one of only four in the world that houses shops on both sides over the entire span. My favourite little tea shop is on one of the ends and I included a picture I took out the window right beside where I was sitting. Their cakes are delicious - good place to stop and recharge.

This is a bridge that crosses the river Avon and overlooks the weir. There are many interesting and quaint shops that deserve a browse. it is a short walk over the bridge , but be careful as a great deal of traffic crosses the road on the bridge and many people walk across at the same time!.
