    Great Pulteney Street is the result of 18th Century property speculation.....and thank goodness My Pulteney speculated, for the result is quite beautiful including the bridge that links this street to the City of Bath across the river Avon. The street is 1,000 feet (or nearly half a kilometre) long and lined both sides by sedate but beautiful Georgian facades.

    A street that must have been great in the old days before cars. You can only imagine what it must have been like when horse and carriage's were the order of the day. It has great architecture and a great hotel called 15 Pulteney a must for a drink, dinner to eat or stay at.

    Watched to sun rise over this area while on a hike, this area is just after crossing the bridge and river Avon. If you like looking at how-did-build this type structures it's very interesting.

    There is an old time feel here, especially with the unique bridge at one end. There is also a brilliant little Restaurant called Antica that serves great Italian food at very reasonable prices.

    It is a street to wander along, five minutes from the Abbey and still full of professional firm like accountants etc. Just an impressive street of which there are so many in Bath.

    We spent two nights in two different rooms. Both rooms were fabulous and the staff were extremely helpful and kind. Rachel in particular was so kind and looked after every detail. We highly recommend Great Pulteney Street for your Bath visit you won't be disappointed. In addition, we enjoyed drinks in the bar and dinner in the restaurant, both resulted in a lovely experience with top notch service! Lovely people and lovely well appointed accommodations await you!

    In Georgian times ...having an address in Great Pulteney Street was the ultimate status symbol....wide, elegant, impressive. It is within 5-10 minutes walk from the town center ...and well worth it, especially on a bright sunny day.

    You dont really need to go into any visitor attractions in Bath as there is so much to see just walking around. Where else in England would you find such unspoilt streets. Bath is not clogged with traffic like so many tourist towns. Great Pulteney Street is a real gem of Georgian architecture. Look out for the octagonal Victoria pillarbox.

    This is a much quieter wider street than the remainder of the tourist attractions and definitely worth the walk although the residents might wish you didn't!

    We stayed in Johnston street, just off this major beautiful street. It is so easy to imagine the ladies and gentlemen of the Regency era parading along this street. Interesting to look up and compare minor changes and differences in the buildings. Loved it.x

    We stayed in Sydney Mews which meant we walked along Great Pultney Street almost every day. It's an amazing double sided vista of fine architecture (but look closely along the mid level line of stone and see if you can spot those that hae subsided slightly over the years!). There are some nice high end hotel / restaurants embedded along the street too. Take a stroll along and imagine yourself promenading in the days of Jane Austen, it's easy to cast your mind back when immersed in such fine period architecture.

    Walking down this wide avenue with honey-colored buildings om either side with symmetrical facades feels like you strayed into a movie set. The perspective is visually pleasing. You can imagine ladies in their gowns and finery and gentlemen in their morning suits taking their constitutional.

    Great Pulteney Street is a grand Street, Georgian houses lining wide pavements and a broad vista down to the Holbourne museum. Pulteney Bridge is famous in Bath, and this Street which leads off it compliments it beautifully. At the bridge end is Laura Fountain, and at the other the Holbourne. Jane Austen lived around the corner. There is a "sedan chair", famous Bath mode of transport outside a hotel half way down the street.

    This is a thoroughfare that starts from Bathwick on the east side of the River Avon via the Pulteney Bridge to the city of Bath. It is the widest and grandest road in Bath. Notable residents here include Jane Austen and William Wilberforce.
