Built in 1773 this beautiful architecture straddle across the river Avon and is a great photo place. It is one of the few bridges in the world with shops lining the road on it and the most famous one being the Ponte Veechio bridge in Florence. You will never miss it coming out of the Roman bath and pass the... More

This bridge is featured in all the information about the city of Bath. Therefore it is a must stop. Everyone is taking photos of the bridge from the intersecting road. You will find a very interesting antique map shop, mosaic tile shop, small tea room, florist, and coin shop on the bridge. You can take river boat tours from the... More

If you are in Bath you must take a walk across the bridge it is steeped in history with many old shops built into the bridge

In dull weather it doesn't look like very much but when the sun is shining, the Pulteney Bridge is beautiful and there are lots of great places to eat nearby

A very beautiful piece of architecture and presents anyone with a great photo opportunity. Looks amazing during the day, and stunning when all lit up during the evening.

Pulteney Bridge is unique in the UK, a bridge with shops all across. The shops are really narrow and it is possible to look straight through them to the water beneath. It us really an experience not to be missed.

Interesting collection of small shops, a lovely cafe (Riverside) just below to the side, with views of the weir & Parade Gardens.

Called the Ponte Vecchio of England, this is Bath's covered/shopped bridge. It is smaller and not as grand, but it is definitely worth taking a stroll over. There are some great coffee shop/tea shop/bakeries there as well as some very nice trinket shops. Good location and very easy to do in the same day you might take an Avon river... More

I guess if you want to photograph in Bath, this has to be one of the places to go. However it's not easy to get a good shot, hanging over the wall. So, just before the bridge, coming from the out of town end, there is a set of steps which are quite hidden, taking you down to the riverside... More
