In the centre of the city, spanning the River Avon, Pulteney Bridge is apparently one of only four bridges in the world that are lined with shops on both sides. Actually, when you're on the bridge it just seems like a normal road but when you view it from the river it's a wonderful piece of architecture. It was completed in 1773 and, along with the Royal Cresecent, has become a symbol of Bath's architecture.

You can get a close view of the bridge from the river walk which is accessed via some steps from the end of the bridge - see 'more photos'
