Pulteney Bridge & Weir

Pulteney Bridge and Weir


A Palladian style bridge with shops spanning both sides; a rare architectural piece. Best viewed from the riverside to the south, which can be accessed via steps to the eastern end of the bridge. Pulteney Bridge is open to pedestrians, but only buses and taxis can drive across.

Pulteney Weir is a year round feature of the city, a great place to sit on a bench with a hot chocolate or a pasty and soak up the atmosphere. Boat trips up the river are also available from the weir; another great way to enjoy Bath.
