I really enjoyed my visit to the Royal Pavilion. It is so imposing and the building is a wonderful sight. Inside, I recommend you pick up the headphone guide as there is so much information about the various rooms so it would be a shame to miss out on the commentary.

Wasn't sure what to expect when I suggested to my friends to go here! I am very happy to say that the group was pleasantly surprised by the quality and state of the Pavilion itself. We found the audio guide very useful during the tour and we managed to get a seat in cafe for a 1/2 point break!

You can't go to Brighton without visiting the Royal Pavillion. Its distinctive oriental exterior and chinese inspired interior is impresssive to say the least. Built for the Prince Regent before he became George IV it is home to the finest collection of chinoiserie style ornaments, lavish chinese wallpapers and a huge chandelier with a dragon holding it up from the...

I had seen snippets on tv before and liked what I had seen. Upon going all I can say is wow and wow again, fantastic, definately one for the bucket list. Very reasonable priced entry with an audio tour. One of the best places I have visited and the care and attention to conservation is unpassable. I will go again... More
