Pulteney Bridge Bath Reviews
Shopper's Bridge Jun 09, 2009
Pulteney Bridge is just on the outskirts of the city centre and spans the river Avon. The bridge is short as you'll see from the photos, but is unique in that there are shops built into it that are still open today.
There is a map shop selling antiques half way down it. If you're into maps and can part with some sterling then you'll love it.
Boats regularly run down the river and there is a side canal/tow path to avoid a small waterfall for heigh difference. A little cafe is just down the bridge steps where you can sit and watch them go by, highly recommend it.
On the Bath city centre side there is a private park on the riverside that you can enter for £1 each which is quite nice and has great bridge views. My photos came from this park.

Unique Apr 28, 2007
The bridge spans the river Avon and was built in 1773 and had been regularly restored since.
On it, on both sides, there are buildings with shops and houses. It is one of the last five bridges in Europe with houses on it.
