Has some nice shops on the bridge. Good to walk about and take in the scenery.
Divert northwards and follow the River Avon along its eastern bank. Keep walking and keep the faith. The views of the city are incredible. The walk ends with steps up to Pulteney Bridge, one of 3 bridges with shops in the world. Can you guess the others?
The is one of the most photographed monuments in Bath and is one of only three bridges in the world that has shops on both sides. There are quaint coffee shops and even a small stamp shop, definitely one to tick off the list!
Everyone's favourite - and for a reason! The area around the bridge is scenic and relaxing, and the sounds and lights are particularly romantic at night. You can eat at one of the bridge's cages or restaurants and shop in the numerous quirky stores.

“As the name suggests, this is THE place in Bath to get authentic Italian Pizza. They have the pizza oven on full display so you can see it cooking whilst you wait. The service is brilliant and it's reasonably priced too.”

“Bar and restaurant. Distinctive eclectic decor and comfy, lounge-style seating. Outdoor seating can be accessed down the lane to the left hand side of the pub. A home-from-home atmosphere which reminds me of the function of a great pub: to be a 'public house' and gathering place for the community. Cheaper to buy a bottle of the very nice house wine than 4 individual glasses. Dogs are welcomed. Can be very quiet and peaceful for a good catch up and chat, but sometimes gets pretty busy later in the evening. There's usually somewhere free to sit, though.”
