The bridge sums up Bath in many ways. The architecture is spectacular and definitely worth going for a coffee to check out. Highly recommended.

Not far from the Abbey the Bridge has cute little shops on each side, the cafes offering picture perfect views down the River Avon. You can get great views back towards the bridge by going down to river level near the levy.
