This is a must see uk attraction Hitler wanted it for his UK base, must attract the unusual, built for a off the radar kind of bloke in the first place. Go and you'll find out about part of Britains Heritage that has a peculiar fit.

Most recently I went when the Pavlion was decorated for Christmas. I have never seen such elegant but yet understated embellishments of this beautiful building. Walking through the King's chambers I felt I was a royal guest.

We last visited the Pavilion some 35 years ago and have to say I don't think we appreciated then just how impressive it truly is. The outside looks a little weather worn, however the inside is quite spectacular. An English view of an Indian exterior and Chinese interior should not work but incredibly it does in an Alice in Wonderland... More

We toured the Royal Pavilion on a cloudy, fairly cold day. We were greeted at the tour entrance by a cozy fire and two well-informed guides who gave us a little extra color about the history of the Pavilion. The architecture is fascinating and the interior as over the top as you'd expect royal summer quarters to be. Our only... More

The Brighton Pavilion represents everything good about cultural diversity and breaking boundaries with creativity. The enormity and multitude of influence and inspiration in this eclectic palace is impossible to take in on one visit, and that's what makes it value for money. It stands as an ambassador to artistic inspiration.

Do not be fooled by the exterior. The interior is far more surprising and the story behind the place is fascinating. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful building and an interesting history! Highly recommended. A special mention to one of the employees, Meg Hogg, who was very friendly and knowledgable! She really made the Pavilion come alive!

Can't believe I've never been here before! Been visiting Brighton for 40 years!! A real insight into pre-Victorian England - and to the Prince Regents character ! What a lad ! Rooms faithfully kept in period fashion and the kitchen was incredible! Have to re-visit to soak up some more.

I live in Brighton and for years have gone past and wanted to know what was inside the building. Being a local you tend to not go sight seeing... well I can tell you I was very glad I got over myself and went inside. The staff were very friendly and full knowledge. the ceilings and decoration to this place... More
