Full description

The Royal Pavilion has a colorful history stretching back 200 years. Built as the seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, it has also served as a civic building, First World War hospital, and has become an icon of Brighton. In the mid-1780s George, Prince of Wales, rented a small lodging house overlooking a fashionable promenade in Brighton. Brighton was developing from a decayed fishing town to an established seaside retreat for the rich and famous, being close to London, and after George was sworn in as Prince Regent in 1811 he commissioned John Nash to begin the transformation from modest villa into the magnificent palace that we see today. Walk through the lavish state rooms on the ground floor including the banqueting room, the music room, the magnificent recently restored saloon, and the great kitchen. Explore further rooms upstairs, including Queen Victoria's bedroom. Learn about the use of the building as a military hospital for Indian soldiers during the first world war.

Most interesting and detailed work of the building envelope and from the chandeliers to the wallcoverings, carpets and furniture etc. A truly awesome experience and interesting to see a Western interpretation of Chinese art and artifacts BUT tea room was closed and parking is a nightmare and expensive NCP £19.00+ SOoooo excessive!

A truly amazing day spent at Royal Pavilon in Brighton. We planned to stay just a few hours, yet suddenly noticed that time had been flying as we were so fascinated by all we saw and learned. Very much enjoyable and interesting was also the verbal context provided by one of the experts there, her enthusiasm and insights made the rich history of the Royal Pavilon even more alive. Thanks a lot for a wonderful day! (Also much appreciated the very informative and colorful Guide Book available in the lovely gift shop, which was surprisingly quite affordable)

This was my second time staying at the Royal Pavilion and I was blown away by the space just like the first time. We recommend. This time my 8 year old daughter was with me. She was given a small booklet where she could look for animals in every room and there were also 6 stuffed kittens hidden in the building. It was fun for both of us.
