Pulteney Bridge is one of the most beautiful landmarks in the whole of Bath. To help you with your trip, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to Pulteney Bridge! Enjoy.
Pulteney Bridge was designed in 1769 and holds the impressive accolade of being one of only four bridges in the world to have shops across its full span on both sides. The Bridge takes its name not from the architect – who was called Robert Adam – but after Frances Pulteney, wife of an important land owner in Georgian era bath. This land owner wanted to build a new city on the west side of Bath, but need a new bridge in order to move materials across the river. The architecture is classical, with gorgeous pilasters and leaded domes on each end.
