The shops on the Bridge are fascinating in their architecture, small quaint buildings, the Pulteney Bridge is fascinating as you look down on the swirling water, it is beautiful scenery and you can take a long walk along the River Avon

A very interesting bridge as it has shops on it, and when walking along the road you would have no idea you're on a bridge! Beautiful from the weir side, not as attractive from the other side!

Just to be clear, the only "view" there is to be seen on Pulteney Bridge is that of shops, which were of no interest to us. However, the view around the corner, which apparently is not Pulteney Bridge, is beautiful. I agree with a previous reviewer in that the reality does not match the tourist blurb in brochures and leaflets.... More

The first time I saw this place was a beautiful scenery and I wanted too see more, considering I am not very good on boats I must say I was very comfortable and seeing a bit more of bath.

We visited Bath for a 3 day break & spent a lot of time around Pulteney Bridge & Weir. It's a truly beautiful place to stand & watch the water, boats & sea gulls bathing, . We took 2 short boat trips above and below the weir & bridge and got to admire it from every direction. The wonderful stonework... More

I stood on the bridge and watched the views of the boats sailing across the water, is very relaxing to watch. Has good views of the gardens too.
