The Royal Pavilion was one of the major draws to Brighton for me. It is so distinct and unique from other attractions around and well worth the visit. The Chinese style rooms are stunning and fascinating. With admission you are given an audio tour guide but I would highly recommend taking a tour with a real guide. A professional guide... More

It is well worth a visit. The exterior is so amazing but wait until you see the inside. It is equally stunning. I was so glad I visited this wonderful building.

We really enjoyed our tour through the Royal Pavilion. The rooms were amazing in the Chinese style - very different to many castles and country homes we have visited.

This was well worth the visit. Great audio and good value. Not at all disappointed and don't have to be a history buff. Plenty of great eating /ding options nearby and park for picnic lunch
