Bath- The Morning After

As a wonderful follow-on to the previous night’s ball at the Assembly Rooms, we were invited to breakfast at the Pump Room Restaurant by the ball’s organizer Izabela Pitcher. 🙂 We were extremely pleased by both the venue itself and the meal. The Pump Room is a restaurant that was originally built in the late 18th Century as part of a number of structures that were erected as part of developing the town of Bath as a resort destination for the rich. Here’s one view of the Pump Room in 1798:

And the front entrance today:

Also, the Pump Room was built as part of a complex that utilized the existing natural springs, to create the King’s and Queen’s Baths which were marketed as health spas; today, only the King’s Bath exists. Here we are arriving at the Pump Room:

Here I am wearing my wool sack suit- The weather in California is usually just not cold enough for this.

And yes, you can still “take the waters” of Bath…it’s really just warm cloudy water with the hint of various minerals… 🙂
