Concierge.com's insider take:

Built by Thomas Baldwin and John Palmer in the late 18th century, the elegant Pump Room is a great place to take tea and get a taste of Georgian Bath. In Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen wrote: "With more than usual eagerness did Catherine hasten to the pump-room the next day...Every creature in Bath...was to be seen in the room at different periods of the fashionable hours; crowds of people were every moment passing in and out, up the steps and down..." The scene today is just as chaotic, but hordes of retirees and teens with iPods hardly have the same stylish effect.
