“Victorian Splendour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Had forgotten how oppulent and amazing this building was........Not been here for over 20 years and it was just as OTT as my last memory! If you love history, or just camp opulence.....GO VISIT!!

“uniquely stunning building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Stopping overnight between flights at gatwick--we took the train down to Brighton to the this magnificently preserved building--well done to the Local Council. Tea Room could do with a bit more thought to bring it up to the same wow factor as the rest of the building.

“Amazing building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

From the outside the place looks fantastic, but inside the richness of the decor and the quirky desighs have to be seen to be believed. Far exceeded my expectations and the audio guide was invaluable. If you are in Brighton our the surrounding area it is a treat not to be missed.

“Georgian Splendour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

drove to Brighton on tuesday 13th November, have always wanted to view the Royal Pavilion as the last time I was in Brighton was just after the fire and the Pavillion was closed to the public.. Was so glad that I could visit it this time as it was amazing.......How the rich lived and dined in Gegogian times, you have to see the fantastic lighting and decorations, The guides on duty were very helpful and knowledgeable . Was fascinated by the story of the young Queen Charolotte who died in childbirth as I have not heard her mentioned much in the history books. Well worth a visit.
