The widest street in Bath.

This street is the widest and only street that you can turn a carriage being pulled by four horses. Anyother interesting part of Bath.

This is a long very attractive street. Wide and clear (though with a lot of cars parked on it). Leading up to the Pulteney Bridge, it is well worth a visit.

When visiting the Georgian City of Bath, you are sure to find time to go to the Roman Baths, the Royal Crescent, the Circus, the Assembly Rooms and more; all are on everybody's calling list. But find time also to visit Great Pulteney Street, just over the Pulteney Bridge. The street was built between 1789 and 1792, is over three... More

A lovely broad Georgian street leading from Pulteny Bridge to the Holburne Museum of Art. Nice to walk down and imagine how it might have been in days when Jane Austen or William Wilberforce lived there.

When in Bath, visit Great Pulteney Street. It is very impressive with The Holbourne Building centred at one end and Pulteney Bridge at the other.

This wide street contains some of the most beautiful houses in Bath. At the top of the street is the Holbourne Museum (a must) and at the bottom the Bridge. I was also reminded of New Town in Edinburgh.

In common with many of Bath's streets, Great Poulteney Street, this lovely street has remained unspoiled since it was built.

How can you not be impressed with this wonderful wide Georgian street. The pavements are so wide, probably two car widths, that on both sides, two rows of parked cars and then two lanes of traffic - amazing! The rows of four storey terraced Georgian houses just finishes it all off. It takes you back to Jane Austen novels!

No area will give you a truer feeling of the Georgian city of Bath than Great Pulteney Street. It's a wide avenue with sweeping 18th century buildings planned from their beginnings to make an impression on passersby. I walked from central Bath to Great Pulteney Street from its beginning near the banks of the River Avon, to its end, at... More
