So pretty

Lovely architecture - an historic area. The weir is lovely. Just wish the sun had come out, but at least it wasn't raining!

The fact that the buildings on the bridge are being used is awesome. The bridge is lived with a number of quirky shops and places to eat. We walked along the river bank over by the rugby ground & from here you have views of the Abbey & the weir.

This bridge is one of many famous images of Bath so simply must be visited, The bridge simply must be photographed with the river with it's three tier weir as an iconic memory of your visit.

Took a day trip from London with my mom and sister and after visiting Stonehenge we made our way over to Bath. It was so much fun to see the history that this beautiful city holds onto!

We stopped by the bridge to eat our picnic lunch. It was very peaceful but I guess it gets a lot busier in the season.

It is as impressive as some of the better known bridges in Italy. It is a great photo opportunity spot since it gives you a great view. Go down the steps and look back at the city and bridge...wow!

There are some shops and restaurants in the bridge, but we did not go in them. Charming photo op on the river, and lots of shops nearby.

You should for sure take a look and stroll. I also love that it blends in with most all the other buildings. . It was perfect: take a camera and enjoy the interesting commentary. It is a beautiful place to take photos and admire the panoramic beauty of the area.
