Charming bridge over weir

Similar to those found in Venice and Florence as well as Oxford this frames the River Avon offering quaint coffee shops and eateries and winding stairs to the rivers edge.

The bridge was on the way to our B&B, so we passed over it at least twice per day. The views coming and going from various approaches were picturesque. I enjoyed the small "by appointment to Queen Charlotte" sign outside the apothecary. It was interesting to see the shops still built in to both sides of the side of the... More

It's worth walking over to see this bridge/river/weir in the day or night time. Plenty of interesting shops cafes and pubs on the bridge too.

Pulteney Bridge is an amazing place for taking photographs, quite unique and pretty. The weir is most unusual. A good hour can be spent walking up the canal both sides to get a different perspective on the bridge.

When we went there it was really nice as we got to have ice cream for 1 pound which was delicious but we also got to go on a boat trip which was really nice. Overall if your visiting bath you should come here.

It's an interesting site to visit to stand and listen to the rushing water and admire the beautiful setting. I think it's a "must see" as it is an intrinsic part of this fantastic town's identity and is picturesque both day and night. When you are on the bridge itself, it just seems to be another road with shops and... More

We visited this on the way to the Holborn Museum, you only need to spend around ten minutes but it's interesting to see the weir.

Every time I visit Bath this bridge is a key part of the attractions for me, not least because it is just around the buzzing parts of the City. It is an interesting bridge with an attractive weir on one side and a strange looking lock system adjacent to it, the weir is worthy of a photograph, in a sense... More
