Leaming Spa gems
The Royal Pump Rooms and Jephson Gardens
The Royal Pump Rooms are now a cultural tourist complex, housing the town’s Museum, Art Gallery, Library and Tourist Information Centre, alongside the Regency-style Assembly Rooms and a café. When it’s busy it’s not easy to get a table!
In the museum, there are displays on the historic use of the Pump Roomsand Spa Treatments, including some rather fascinating objects from the former physiotherapy department. Should you wish, and dare to, there is also the opportunity to sample the spa water!
Wheelchair access The art gallery is on one level and the museum is on two levels, the upper floor accessible by stairs. A chairlift to the upper floor is usually available on request. There is wheelchair access throughout rest of the building, including toilets. For more information please telephone 01926 742700 or ask at the Art Gallery reception desk.
Across the road from Royal Pump Rooms are the Jephson Gardens, which is accessible by paths throughout.
