One of only two bridges in Europe to support shops, the majestic Pulteney Bridge crosses the river Avon uniting east and west Bath.
|The bridge today has
many small eccentric shops, and a good variety of restaurants serving Italian, Thai,
Indian (including the award wining Rajpoot
Indian Restaurant) and French cuisine, all two minutes walk from Carfax's front
|The concentric sweeps of the weir
you see in the foreground, were added much later in 1972.
Regular hourly boat trips up stream leave from the east bank, and reveal a seldom seen but remarkably beautiful side to Bath.
