Experience the history of Cheltenham at the Pittville Pump Room
Situated on the north-eastern border of the beautiful Cotswolds, Cheltenham is known for its spa town history. The Pittville Pump Room, perhaps the pinnacle of that history, was the last spa building to be built in the town and today stands as a stunning reminder of the town’s history. Open to the public and available for hire, the Pittville Pump Room has been used as a venue for weddings, museum exhibitions and events such as the Cheltenham Music Festival.

Spa waters and a royal visit
The year was 1788 and King George III was sick. By this point, the town of Cheltenham was already known for its spa waters and more and more people were coming to benefit from their healthful properties. Accompanied by Queen Charlotte and his children, King George III followed the trend and visited the town. Whether the waters actually helped him or not is unknown, but the king enjoyed his five-week stay and gave the town his endorsement. Over the next years more spa buildings would be built, ending in the early 1800s with the Pittville Pump Room. Impressively regal and architecturally stunning, the Pump Room was the biggest of the spa buildings to be constructed. Though it was only used to sample the mineral waters, the building also hosted its own events and parties as a way of making money. It didn’t really work, though, and less than a century had passed before the building was given to the town council. In 2014 the Cheltenham Trust, who also managed Cheltenham’s Prince of Wales Stadium and Cheltenham Town Hall, took over management of the Pump Room.

Pittville Pump Room - music in the spa
Preserved by the town of Cheltenham due to its magnificent Regency architecture, the Pittville Pump Room has been the stage for many musical concerts throughout the years. Its layout makes it ideal for orchestral performances by the likes of the Cheltenham Philharmonic Orchestra, who have played there several times, and the Bristol Classical Players. It has also been a venue for the Cheltenham Chamber Music Series, featuring performances by the likes of the Chiaroscuro Quartet, and is also used by the Cheltenham Music Festival, which highlights a broad range of classical and modern symphonic and chamber music. The Cheltenham Chamber Music Series and the Cheltenham Music Festival, as well as festivals such as the 2000trees Music Festival at Cheltenham’s Upcote Farm, make up just a few of the events on Cheltenham’s amazing music scene. Spoken word artists, comedians and more have also graced the stage of the Pittville Pump Room.
