Full of charm and history, fascinating rooms, a must see if you are in Brighton. Learn all about the History of our Royal Family in this wonderful setting. And so near the beach or North Lanes shopping for a stroll afterwards.

Great place to visit if the weather not good. Beautiful place and very interesting. It takes about an hour to do the tour. Very central and easy to find.

We went to the pavilion on a week day and unfortunately the place was teeming with schoolkids. This made the visit somewhat uncomfortable with so many people in the place. Probably best to visit here at a weekend or during school holidays.

Train is best, do not go by car as Brighton is a nightmare for car travelers. It has a good bus system in the town and a good one to Eastbourne. If you like walking you could walk the Seven Sisters.
