Sounds mad because it is such a huge iconic building in Brighton however not everyone visits and huge numbers of those who live on Brighton either haven't been or haven't been for years! Mad really as it is breathtaking.

Always worth a visit when in Brighton. The pavilion is an amazing palace built by a prince who later became King of England.
