Large garden area with a cafe so you can sit and people watch. Inside the pavilion is very interesting and well worth a trip, cafe upstairs if you fancy a cup of tea and cake. Audio is available.

It's a must-see with its historical value. It's also full of great art work from India and China. It's an exotic palace and it's in the centre so very easy to go.

It's worth the money to book a guided tour in the Royal Pavillion. The historical background of the place and the many anecdotes about the bucolic life at the court add substantial value to your trip.

My first visit to Brighton Pavilion: absolutely first class. The salon restoration is worth a visit in its own right. The fabulous large banqueting room is awe inspiring. Thank goodness it was saved by Brighton Corporation for the entire world to see!
