There's not much to it - its only a wee bridge after all, but it's pretty and offers lovely views of the River Avon below.

An iconic landmark in the centre of Bath, with lots of small shops and cafes in the immediate area. One of many architecture draws that Bath has to offer.

We came here on quite a few occasions during our stay in Bath. There is a real vibe about this place. It’s s natural ‘gathering place’.

No nee to go find this spot... if you're visiting beautiful Bath, it is very hard not to pass Pulteney Bridge. Lovely landmark right in city centre!

When you think of that iconic bridge / dam setting in western Britain this is it. Standing at the sidewalk and looking down in the spillway with the bridge behind is picture perfect.

My partner and I walked along both sides of the bridge and enjoyed peering into the various shops along the side.

Not many bridges with a full range of shops on either side (so no view of the river). Unusual enough to visit and there is a nice cake & coffee shop included.

I don’t know the history of this bridge but we enjoyed coffee sandwiches and cakes in a shop on the bridge overlooking the water from the shade, and then we enjoyed ice cream outside. There is a very pretty garden a short walk from here.
