We visited towards the end of the day when it was quiet. The dining room and kitchen were on a monumental scale. Quite pricy for a quick look round at £11 each, but as a frequent visitor to Brighton thought it was time I looked inside. I was impressed!

There's nothing quite like it - walking through someone else's oriental fantasy. Try and pick a quiet day.

We bid for tickets to the Pavilion in a charity auction, because the nearer you live to something the less likely you will go and visit it. It is an excellent experience and I would recommend anyone to go round it. You will need about 2 hours to see it properly and there is a free audio guide included in... More

Such a decadent and opulent interior, whacky hand panted walls and ceilings with exotic embellishments, like something out of a dream - or India!

If you think the outside is quirky you will be blown away by the interiors. As a resident of Brighton for 20 years I still love coming here and love the look on friends faces when we bring them to see the pavilion !! Its a must !

if you enjoy anything with coulter and character to it, then the pavilion is wonderful <3 im very passionate about the vibrant history of brighton and so i like the pavilion. however, if your not interested in learning about the prince regent then don't bother, because that is basically all the tour will talk about.
