The Pump Rooms in Bath



This image shows some Georgian gorgeousness at the Pump Rooms in the centre of the city. The Pump Rooms adjoin the Roman Baths and was the social centre where the Georgian gentry played cards, danced and generally caroused. You can glimpse the amazing chandelier hanging inside the window. Nowadays tourists take tea here and sample the spa water which is renowned for it's health-giving benefits, but actually tastes awful! The Abbey is just visible in the background.

  4. That's a place I love! Is there still a National Trust shop more or less opposite the Pump House?

  6. Hi from Newcastle Daily Photo. I love this picture... I used to live in York and even though I knew I'd clicked to Bath daily photo, for a second I thought this was York :) Have only visited Bath once and I think I should come back. In the meantime, I'll be back here :)
