Beautiful town with great views. Lots of eateries around with gorgeous buildings. Went after Christmas over new year decorations looked lovely. Normal city centre shops and some quaint shops through the back streets. We didn't do the Roman baths or abbey but it was still Well worth a visit.

A quaint bridge with integral shops part of the quaintness of Bath. I didn't go in but their appears to be a nice coffee house on the Bridge. I had already had a coffee elsewhere. Very close to the centre.

You don't really realise that you are on a bridge with all the lovely little shops either side but go into the little café for morning coffee or tea and cake sit down and look out over the weir and relax after shopping. Worth stopping for

It is a short visit, although you might enjoy a coffee or two with friends gazing out of one of the south facing windows watching the weir and listening to the sound it makes, then there's flower shops, carpet, art or antique shops. It is a one-way street going East but watch out for the traffic.

A very attractive bridge similar to its larger relative in Florence! Plenty nice coffee shops along it and on a bright sunny day such as our visit, a very picturesque place.

Lovely spot to get away from the town centre. Stunning piece of engineering and an interesting walk along the river.

Spent time wandering around the garden and canal next to the bridge. Serene and peaceful. Loved the architecture and gardens.
