Royal Pavilion is a lovely unusual place to visit,but the café does not do it justice.Overpriced cakes . venue so very crowded had to wait a long time for a table and then it was a long time to get it cleaned George 4th would turn in his grave

It's a strange place but worth a look. Very eclectic inside , you have a phone type thing that tells you the history of the place and each room
