Pittville Pump Room information
Built in 1830 as the centrepiece to a large housing subdivision, the Pittville Pump Room is Cheltenham’s finest Regency building, modelled on an ancient Athenian temple. Admire the beautiful pillared exterior, wander into the main auditorium and sample the pungent spa waters from the fountain, or just explore the surrounding park with its lake, lawns, playground and (now restored) 19th-century blue-green gates. The Pump Room often closes for private events, so check ahead. It’s a mile north of the central High St.
