Built between 1825 and 1830 the Pump Room was planned as the centrepiece of a grandiose estate, belonging to wealthy landowner, politician and entrepreneur, Joseph Pitt. During its Regency heyday it was the largest and most magnificent of several buildings where the renowned Cheltenham Spa Waters could be taken.

The spa waters can still be tasted today from the original marble and scagliola pump, although now they are pumped electronically from the well, 80 feet below, rather than by the traditional handpump method.
