The Royal Pavilion is an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton with a colourful history. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.

Had seen the pics but the opulence was so much better in real life. Give yourself at least a couple of hours to have a good look around. The audio tour is worth getting and if you go early you’ll miss the crowds.

Wow was I amazed! Such a beautiful opulent interior, each room having its own character.
A must see if you live in or are visiting Brighton.
It takes a while to find your way into this amazing building, but the effort is worth it. I’ve never seen anything like it. Inside the decoration is fantastic, in the true sense of the word.
It is well worth getting the audio guide, normally...More
