For anyone who is interested in the lives of English monarchs, or for those who just want to be awed by amazing decor, ornamentation and architecture, the Royal Pavilion at Brighton should be on your bucket list. From its over-the-top exterior architecture to the interiors furnished in chinoiserie and Regency antiques, this getaway basically furnished and conceived by George IV (it was built before he got to it but he made it into what it is today) is amazing. Even children will be awed by the dragons and the soaring chandeliers and the attention to every detail. The new voice tours bring the place to life in an amazing way. And after your tour you can enjoy food in their lovely little restaurant/tearoom. EVERYONE should visit the Royal Pavilion if possible, because it will add to your understanding of the period in which it was built and used and it is a delight for the senses. On a drab and gray English winter day I came away uplifted and excited.
