You can get different views of pulteney bridge and weir from both sides of the river. When the sun shines it gives beautiful shadow

Interesting little bridge crossing the. River Avon. What sets the bridge apart are the shops that line the bridge. The local tour info compares it to the The bridges in Florence and Venice. While it’s a perfectly nice bridge, it really doesn’t compare.

Pulteney Bridge is a must see if you are visiting Bath. It's beautiful to see on a nice day, and has a wide variety of independents shops for you to explore.

A location that must be visited when visiting bath, the weir of the river Avon below and the structure of the bridge make a perfect photo to add to your memories

Picturesque - I hardly ever use that word but this area in Bath truly was. Hardly any traffic and friendly people all around. My only regret was not having more time to spend here. Don't miss this stop if you are in the area!

Not brilliant but after crossing it on a regular basis for a few days we got to enjoy it for what it is. A photogenic tourist site, perhaps best viewed from down stream

Pulteney Bridge and the cascading water on the arched steps look amazing, you can stand and admire this area and Imagine the well dressed ladies and gents that once strolled here in their fine attire.

Hey, sorry for the delay! Someone might be able to correct me as I'm back in Nashville now but I feel as though there was only one main road into the town of Bath where Pulteney Bridge is located. The winding roads were... More
