One of Bath’s most famous sights, Pulteney Weir – a low horseshoe dam regulating the flow of the River Avon – dates back to 1603. Located near the iconic Georgian masterpiece that is Pulteney Bridge, the weir achieved newfound fame when it stood in for the River Seine in the 2015 film version of Les Misérables starring Anne Hathaway! But this is only one major highlight during this short but very sweet jaunt along the river. Travelling on a restored 1960s Broads Cruises, with a lovely outdoor area to enjoy in nice weather and an indoor section warmed with a cosy real fire stove in winter, you'll also see the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under North Parade Bridge while keeping your eyes peeled for nesting peregrine falcons that reside in the grounds of 19th century St. John's Church.
