Pulteney Bridge, with its sweeping horseshoe-shaped weir, is one of Bath’s most famous images.

The bridge, which incorporates shops, was built by Robert Adam in 1769. The estimated cost of the bridge was £1, 000. It ended up costing £10, 000 which, over 200 years ago, was the equivalent of several million pounds today.

Boat trips leave regularly from here going above the weir upriver to Bathampton. The open-top bus tours start right by here, on Grand Parade. There are several cafes on or overlooking the bridge.

Local attractions and things to do in the area may not be open all year round and may require pre-booking. Please check the attraction website before visiting to avoid disappointment.
