It's a really nice place with all the shops and homes. Not on a bridge but a whole small world. Short walk but a lot to see. Nice cafes and really posh shops, like the one with maps. Go downstairs when you cross the bridge and look up, and watch.

Staying at nearby Bailbrook House Hotel, a member of staff alerted us to the fact that we could go into town by boat. What a lovely relaxing way to travel into the city. We passed under this bride alighting just the other side, with wonderful views of the weir. There are lots of small interesting shops on the bridge which... More

I was quite sure that it's just a bridge - pretty and interesting because of its architecture, but nothing more. Well, that's exactly the truth, but at the same time it really is pretty and lots of people are standing there longer than necessary for a quick look or a picture. There is something special in the atmosphere, you just... More

A very pleasant authentic Italian restaurant. We were squeezed in at short notice and ended up with the best table in the house. Go here if you get the chance. It's honest good food.

Wonderful bridge with shops on it. Stunning view towards the weir and the river. It is also possible to take a river trip.

The pulteney bridge is over the river Avon. It is very short and has many small shops in it similar to the Ponte Vecchio....but in Bath England! The cafes have wonderful views of the river. The weir is very interesting and was featured in the movie, Les Miserables, where the officer commits suicide by falling from the bridge into the... More

Just a shame that someone had thrown a traffic cone into the weir, completely spoilt the photo opportunity.

Gorgeous bridge, it's lovely to walk all the way around it and down the river too. Must see if you're a Les Mis fan! Mesmerising watching all the water!
