Pulteney Bridge, Bath, Somerset
Pulteney Bridge was originally built in 1774 to connect the city of Bath to land belonging to the Pulteney family that they wanted to develop. It’s a very unusual Palladian style bridge with shops and restaurants all the way across it on both sides – there are only four bridges in the world like this.
It’s one of the most photographed parts of Bath, with the sweeping horseshoe weir in front of it. Go and see it and then hop on a sightseeing bus for a tour of the city, or on a boat for a trip up the river to Bathampton.
