The East Gate

The only survivor of Bath’s four medieval gates, East Gate is now more important for the historical trail it leads us on, rather than what you can see today.

The original city wall was built in Roman times and lasted until into the 17th century. The North, South and West gates were sadly demolished in the 18th century.

East Gate can still be seen – now way below street level – near Pulteney Weir. You can find more about its history and that of the surrounding area in maps and images here.
