Beautiful bridge and river

Very unique bridge and river construction. Absolutely beautiful to walk along on a sunny (or even rainy!) day. Often ducks float down the river; makes for a cute photo op.

We ate at a tapas restaurant located just by the Bridge, called La Tasca and afterwards we got some lovely atmospheric pictures. We returned the day after to get some photos in the day, it's a tourist must-see!

The bridge and river are a very photogenic sight. Though I wouldn't travel miles just to see this, you'd be daft to miss it on a visit to Bath

dont forget to take a walk along the river in the evening. it is very relaxing and peaceful. also make sure to have a look from the top of the bridge as well. if you plan it right you can walk around bath and cover both photo spots easily.

Pulteney Bridge is picturesque with some great architecture. There are some lovely cafes and shops on the bridge and it's worth crossing the bridge to take a walk along the river.

Another example of brilliant and innovative Georgian thinking and construction. Not quite the 'Ponte Vecchio' but splendid in it's own right. The illuminated view across the river, illuminated at dusk, is a must see.

Walking over this bridge you can miss the fact it is a bridge so take time to look through the cafes, you can see right through some of them and out the other side. Otherwise go to the ends and look at the banks and the man made rapids.

Very pretty and picturesque. Some lovely shops and architecture to look around. It is very useful for getting to the other side of the river Avon.

Pulteney Bridge is really quite beautiful and being so close to central Bath makes it a landmark easily found when you're in the city. Both PT :-) and I stood and took in the sheer force of the water as it flows through the weir below the bridge, and crossed to enjoy the view from the opposite side. Pulteney really... More
