Pittville Pump Room is a magnificent Grade I listed Regency building overlooking the lawns and lake of Pittville Park. Built by Joseph Pitt, the pump room took five years to build, opening in 1830. It was the last, and largest, of Cheltenham’s spa buildings. Pittville was Pitt’s vision of a planned new town development of the 1820s with the pump room as its centrepiece.
Through its colourful history the iconic pump room has been an entertainment venue, hosted Royalty and housed American GIs during the Second World War after the US entered the war in 1942. It underwent major refurbishment in the 1960s. Today it is a leading venue for weddings and private hire events; corporate events and conferences; concerts; talks, workshops and the creative artisan market. The popular Heritage Café Orangery is open daily for food and drinks with views over the pump room and park.
