Having visited Brighton many times, this was the first occasion I visited the pavilion. I wish I’d visited sooner, a beautiful building and a shining light in the history and culture of Brighton. Everyone that visits Brighton should spend time with this beautiful historical building...More

A wondrous palace, complete with secret passages, ornate decor and sumptuous tea room. My husband and I got married here. It is a very special place. Fit for a king.

An amazing place so beautiful but entry is very expensive. A nice place to visit- great tea rooms that are standard pricing. The gardens are good and the staff informative. Gift shop is super pricey.

Built as King George IV s pleasure palace the Royal Pavilion was also used by King William IV and Queen Victoria. Today has been restored to its original 1823 splendor with Indian architecture contrasted with interiors inspired by China.

Very enjoyable and informative. I hadn’t been for years and it was much better than I remembered. The decor is stunning and beautifully kept. If you love history you will love this. Also importantly, good toilet facilities and cafes. 🤗

Awesome decor - breathtaking over the top - almost on par with Versailles although not on the same scale. Chinese decor is incredible
