Welcome back to Pittville Pump Room

New heritage trail at Pittville Pump Room

The Story of Pittville Pump Room is a new immersive heritage trail that brings the history of the iconic Grade I listed Regency building to life.

Visitors can choose the methods that suit them whether it’s a visual tour, viewing vignettes of artefacts from a specific era, marvelling at the beautiful hand-made replica model of the pump room, or trying on Regency costumes.

They can also opt for the self-guided audio tour, listening to characters from across the eras telling their stories and experiences via their phones or laptop. The audio tour will be accessible via QR codes so visitors can listen how and when they wish.

The trail, the first of its kind at the pump room, launches during national Heritage Open Days in September with a busy programme over four days in September.

Activities will include themed talks and workshops, a children’s clue hunting trail, strolling characters, re-enactments, themed food and drink, and live music. We’ll be announcing more details of the launch weekend shortly with some exciting surprises to come.

Further heritage open days have been announced. Additional dates will be updated via our websites and social media. *

Thursday 16 September, Friday 17 September, Saturday 18 September, Sunday 19 September.

Monday 25 October, Tuesday 26 October, Wednesday 27 October, Thursday 28 October.

Tuesday 9 November, Wednesday 10 November, Thursday 11 November, Friday 12 November.
