We have just held our wedding at the Pavilion and could not have made a better choice the service and help was fantastic both before and on the day. We had the 5pm slot so were able to have extra group photos in the music room which was just an added bonus

The food selection was good and prices were reasonable. We had... More

This is well worth a visit. The architecture from the outside is beautiful and reminds you of India. Inside, it has a Chinese feel but the grandeur is magnificent. You really became aware of how the other half lived. Only downside, the audio sets that both my wife and I had were both problematic, deciding to stop when they liked.... More

It is a must if visiting Brighton but try to go early as it may be cooler, the large groups normally start a little later. All of this is so you can see the building, it is just beautiful. Great that the local council own it too.

We visited The Royal Pavilion in Brighton and were once again impressed by the grandiose interior. Whilst the outside is interesting the inside is magnificent.
