Loveky building

Lovely building but it's a real shame it's been left to decay in this way. We will watch with keenness to see what happens to it.

Singulr, as Holmes would have said! Spacious, airy, unique building with a fascinating history. It's sad that profitable uses cannot be found for it these days. Its would be tragic to lose this iconic feature of the town.

Like most of the reviews it's a beautiful old place to mooch around. The outside is well maintained and the area quite lovely. As with all old buildings it just needs lots of tlc so that my grandchildren get the chance to see this old pavilion in years to come. Well worth a visit.

A wonderful building that is being neglected, if only we could find out what is going to happen to it. I only hope that something will be done before it falls into more disrepair. Come on TBC let us know

The area in and around the Pavilion are really nice. There are Green areas available if you want to relax on the grass, within 2 minute walking distance of restaurants (the offshore restaurant was where we ate) and ice cream vendors, plus you have the Ferris wheel in this area. The princess pier is also a great spot for a... More

Having reviewed the Pavilion before, I felt duty bound to let Torquay Borough Council that visitors to the resort are still waiting for this beautiful old building to be restored to its former glory. It seems that it has been masked now by the big wheel bought in as a tourist attraction. Please TBC find a use for this beautiful... More

The building is nice-looking, and has a distinctive style of architecture. It was nice to have a quick look whilst passing, but I would be more impressed if the site was put to some meaningful use - particularly in relation to tourism.

Please save this building for the future. This building like Brighton Pavilion reflects a history gone by. A beautiful building people grew up with and see everyday. Isn't that just a perfect reason to protect it. Great Britain is a nation of artists they are strong be strong and save this beautiful building.
