If you are in Brighton, definitely, definitely, definitely take the time to see the Royal Pavillion. If nothing else, the shock value of the interiors are worth the few pounds sterling it costs to get in. Although the decoration might be considered tacky, it has...More

I toured (unguided walking tour) this local landmark on my first and only trip to Brighton, England in December (2002). Is it worth a visit??? If you have between 30 minutes and two or three hours, and about 9 or 10 dollars a piece to...More

Ostentation overload, the Pavilion is worth a visit. Todays Royal family would never get away with this.

The Prince Regent’s seaside Palace has always been an iconic building in Brighton and has recently been refurbished. The Interior is lavish and very much over the top with it’s interpretation of Chinese decorations including massive dragons trailing huge chandeliers. The Prince Regent, later George...More

An interesting place to while away a few hours. The 'public' rooms on display are sumptiously decorated with silk brocades, dragons and decadent chanderliers in contrast to the 'private' rooms of the prince regent and queen Victoria which are suprisingly small and cosy. The rooms...More

The Royal Pavilion is a very beautiful monument. The frontage is impressive. We can discover a lot of rooms and understand the story by using an audioguide in different languages. The visit is not very long, interesting and not boring for children. The garden is...More

The grounds and the outside of the building are simply perfect. A beautiful place for the walk in any season, however the entry price to get inside is simply not worth it and I wouldn’t recommend.

You have to see it in person. It was amazing. Built as a pleasure palace for King George IV. You are not allowed to take photos inside and the books available don't do the palace justice. Looks very Indian on the outside but on the...More

I'd say two hours to really take in the detail. You could do it in less but it's not the cheapest place, and a quick scoot round probably isn't good value for the entry fee.
