Great Pulteney Street


At over 1,000 feet long and 100 feet wide, Great Pulteney Street is the widest, grandest thoroughfare in Bath, flanked on either side by beautiful Georgian properties.

One of the longest streets, it is also home to the shortest street in the city. A side street just off Great Pulteney Street, Sunderland Street, has only one address!

This beautiful street, completed in 1789, was commissioned by Sir William Pulteney and designed by Georgian architect Thomas Baldwin.

At one end you will find Laura Place, with its pretty fountain at the centre. At the other end stands the magnificent Holburne Museum, the city's first public art gallery, and Sydney Gardens, the only remaining eighteenth-century pleasure gardens in the country.

In-between are some of the most prestigious addresses in the city. You too can be a resident for a night or two by staying at one of Great Pulteney Street’s accommodation providers. From independently-owned boutique hotel No. 15 Great Pulteney, to the relaxed atmosphere of Dukes Bed and Breakfast and the friendly, family-run Edgar Townhouse, there is something for every taste and budget.

Not surprisingly, the street is a popular setting for many famous film locations. It has featured in Les Misérables, Vanity Fair, Persuasion and The Duchess, bringing stars such as Keira Knightley and Reese Witherspoon to the city.
