Interesting history.

Beautiful testament to a Royal's lavish taste! But the building also presents a fascinating story about the Indian Hospital Queen Victoria established.

Had the wow factor. Didn't see some of the fantastic décor coming! I fell in love with it and if I won the lottery I would decorate my house like it! Lovely atmosphere inside. Helpful staff. A must see house.

My favourite thing at the royal pavilion was the photography exhibition that was here and I would definitely recommend this. Although I am by no means a keen photographer I feel everyone could enjoy this.

A most interesting and worthwhile place to visit, as delightfully bizarre as I had hoped Prinny's holiday pad would be. Don't miss the tea-room - excellent assortment of food, ESP afternoon-tea fare, with lovely views.

My first time to this former palace. And what an amazing place it is, quite extraordinary. The interiors and furniture are stunning, has to be one of the "must do" sites in the UK. The jury is out on the management of the place though, seemed a bit amateurish to me.

You must see the Pavilion. Such a great building with an amazing history. Unfortunately you won't take pics inside but it is totally worth the ticket price. Recommended

Décor, furniture. Visit the rooftop café and take a couple of hours. There are stairs but it caters for disabled people.

First of all, I had no idea this place existed and when we got there I was shocked and so excited to go in. The outside is incredibly ornate and interesting but the inside really surprised me. The story of the building is fascinating and the decoration is totally unexpected. Do yourself a favor and go see it!
