One of only two bridges in the world with shops. Various shops and cafes. But don't try and drive over it as it restricted to public service vehicles you will be snapped and receive a fine.
The bridge is interesting for a stroll around central Bath but not worth a detour. The canal area a level down is a good place to jog around the city on late afternoon or early morning when not too busy.
Okay - it is unusual to have shops along a bridge and they are all very nice and everything, but I wouldn't make a special journey just to see it. Plenty of nice places round about though. Strangely enough, it is a lot more appealing from a distance than it is up close, so perhaps wander down the steps and... More
The Pulteney Bridge itself as well as the streets, shopping, and parks on each side of the bridge provide another wonderful highlight of the Bath central historic district not to be missed.

Apart from the difference in quality, the view was virtually identical. But then, I... More
This is a really nice place to visit. The little café on the bridge is fab for a cream tea/ cake with fantastic views over the river. There are some good little shops too which are worth popping into.
It's just a bridge. Yes, there are a few shops up and down it, but nothing like what we expected to see from earlier reviews. The views are nice but to be honest it is just like any other bridge in a pretty town.
