Worth a stroll through the gardens to admire the very oriental style of the architecture of the buildings. People having picnic bites on the lawns gives a family atmosphere to the premises.

I have long wanted to visit the Pavillion, being both a fan of architecture and the story of George IV. Have to say, I wasn't disappointed - I have seen it in books, but it really is magnificent inside and out!! The dining room and music room, take the breath away!!

A must visit in Brighton. From the outside not so exiting, but on the inside something you probably have never seen before. Extravagance to the top !

A very interesting place for adults and kids alike. We loved the gardens too and as the sun had it's hat on, that made the day even more enjoyable. The food and coffee at the Gallery Cafe was tasty, fresh and good value for money.

We took the tour and loved all the details and stories about the king's extravagances. A highlight was the room withe the lights that look like umbrellas and the sheer opulence of the fixtures.
