A bit run down, but interesting anyway. Better appreciated looking back from the river, otherwise it just looks like a row of shops.

A very interesting place to visit, small shops and tea shops right on the bridge. Right below is the river and a lovely spot for a bit of people watching.

Reminds us of the bridge in Venice, Italy.both sides of bridge are covered with stores, very anvient, lots of people traffic. Downside, everything closes so early that shopping in evenings is impossible. Wish stores were open latrr.

This is best seen in spring when all the flowers are out and the barge trips have just started running plus when Bath Rugby are at home you can hear the sound of the crowed. The bridge was in one episode of Pie in the Sky when they find a body. So fingers crossed when you go it will just... More

From the bridge itself, you don't know it's a bridge. Everyone takes photos from the downstream side; very photogenic. For a dose of reality, take a gander at the upstream side.

This is a pretty bridge in a photogenic area of Bath. You can view the bridge from all angles and see the weir with its boats navigating the tricky currents. The bridge has some tiny shops and cafes in it which are worth visiting. Take the steps down to the water and look up at the bridge.

Don't miss the chance to have one of these super cakes. If the weather is fine then buy one and go and eat it in the park.
