We walked along this bridge as part of two hour free Bath walk and we will be returning. The desserts in the bakery store looked delicious.

We thoroughly enjoyed wandering in the shops on the bridge and getting a feel for the local population as well as the visitors.

do the boat trip and bus trip and see the bridge from different angles..... you may not wish to visit the shops that "overhang" at the back of the store...

This was pretty much the first thing we saw in Bath over the Avon river.

Nice to stroll along the river towards the Pulteney Bridge, but the best thing was the pastry/sweet shop on the actual bridge itself. Had a raspberry tart from one of the shops which was so tasty!

There's also a nice garden just in front of the bridge, but you have to pay to go in, which I thought was a bit stiff.

If you walk across the bridge to the opposite side to where the main city centre is, there's nice places to sit, get some food and it's free, with the same view of the bridge and Avon river!

Better than the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, in my opinion! When the bridge is approached from Pulteney Street it is difficult to tell it is a bridge because of its many shops. Once the corner is turned, however, it becomes apparent. The views of the bridge from the river are impressive.
