Spa water fountain

You can try the hot spa water at the fountain in the Pump Room. It contains 43 minerals and has a rather unusual taste. Spa water has been used for curative purposes for two thousand years. Originally treatments involved bathing in the hot waters, then in the late 17th Century drinking spa water also came to be a recognised treatment for certain conditions. Today we use the hot spa water to heat the Roman Baths and Pump Room site in winter.
