I did enjoy the visit to the pavilion today. I didn't imagine it had such a an Asian influence. I loved every single bit of it.

This Royal pavilion is very grand, mainly decorated in oriental furnishings. The audio tour was really informative and a 'must' for any visitor. The dining hall is spectacular. Make sure you wander around the outside as it is a stunning building as well.

This was much better than I was expecting. Having seen many grand houses and royal residences around the country, was expecting much the same. And it was, but with a twist. Very enjoyable. Definitely worth paying the little extra and do the tour.

A must see when in Brighton. A fascinating insight into the regency period. Well furnished rooms provide a detailed insight into the tastes and fancies of the George (Prince of Wales, who became the Prince Regent in 1811).

Ive been a lifetime nember ofvthe Brighton Pavilion for 15+ years. It is a familiar place for me & yet I never tire of going round the amazing banqueting hall, the kitchen full of "modern for the age" gadgets, the amazing ballroom. It is of constant interest to see the improvements made to the recreation of such an interesting informative... More

Fascinated by the exterior - the interior is as good. Indian outside and ten Chinese inside! Well worth paying extra £2 for audio tour. Fascinating to hear stories of how the pavilion was created and how it has been used through the ages.

Have been using the ice rink here for many years and have to say we are never short of laughs.

I think there ought to be a law which makes it an obligation to visit the Pavilion at least once when coming to visit or live in Brighton. It's an utterly bonkers, beautiful, OTT, decadent, fascinating, opulent building and interior. The dining room/ banquet room took my breath away when I first saw it. If you can go and see... More

A must do in Brighton. It is a wonderfully designed building with a strong Indian influence for the exterior, while the interior is brightly coloured with a strong Chinese feel. The wall and ceiling decor in some rooms is breath taking. Book in advance online if you can for a small saving. Thanks for the vote if you found this... More
