Description of the Pump Room

The interior of the Pump Room is an elegant hall decorated with Corinthian fluted columns. A deep cove separates the entablature from the flat ceiling. A niche on the west side contains the Pump Room fountain, which still dispenses hot mineral water from the springs. Though not very tasty, for centuries this water has been regarded as having healing properties.
