Crossed the bridge before i realised I was on it! The area is beautful with the weir and other buildings. Stone step access by the bridge to the river for a great view.

The bridge is great to take photos of and looks very nice in the sun! On the bridge is pretty cute and quite.. My favourite was the old map shop.. Can find some incredibly old original maps there!

What a lovely little set piece of Georgian elegance! It’s an eighteenth century take on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence on a much smaller scale. The tiny shops on the bridge add a touch of English eccentricity and charm to the whole.

This is a nice view and quite popular with visitors. Lovely at anytime of the year. Just nice to watch the water and world go by.

The bridge is nice historically and is pleasantly located. The first coffee/tea place on the right as you cross the bridge walking away from town is a beautiful place to view the river and the town from. There is a set of stairs about two-thirds...More

When going across the bridge the road with its shops looks just like many other roads although there are some interesting shops and restaurants. Locate the old steps down to the river to appreciate how picturesque the bridge, is or better still, approach the bridge...More

It was interesting to see but would not go out of my way. It is easy to get to and if you are walking around bath do take a few minutes as it is rather unique

When you first walk across it, you don’t realize that you have “crossed” it because the tiny shops that line the bridge hide its very essence - the bridge! After you’ve crossed and you can look back at it, you can appreciate the unique perspective...More

The Pulteney Bridge is one of the most well known attractions in Bath. Walking along the river near the bridge is amazing but, it seems extra special at night. Very romantic.
