MG Discovered by MargaretGladding


Place To See


Built in the eighteenth century, the picturesque Pulteney Bridge crosses the River Avon in the English city of Bath. It’s one of only three bridges in the world with shops lining both sides.

Insider Tip

The nearby Parade Gardens are the best spot from which to view and photograph the bridge in its entirety.
