Attended a graduation and found it very easy to find, comfortable and very accomidating. Drinks were not over-priced and facilities were very clean and well-kept

This was a highlight of our weekend in Brighton, despite the huge chandelier in the banqueting hall being covered for renovation. In fact, this gave a rare opportunity to see restoration/conservation in action. We regularly visit 18th/19th century properties around the UK with the National Trust, but I don't think we've ever seen such extravagance; the decoration is decorated with more decorations! Lavish!
The Pavillion is located centrally in Brighton with a number of restaurants/bars in the vicinity. Priced at £10 per adult, and £5 for an excellent guide book, I felt this was good value for an afternoon's exploration.
The guides are extremely friendly and helpful and bring the history of the place alive. Great to hear such enthusiasm.
We also had afternoon tea in the cafe, which was also reasonably priced, and enjoyed views from the balcony.

This spectacular seaside palace of the Prince Regent (George IV) transformed by John Nash between 1815 and 1822 into one of the most dazzling and exotic buildings in the British Isles. The Pavilion houses furniture and works of art and a magnificent display of Regency silver-gilt. The Royal Pavilion Tearoom, with its fabulous balcony, overlooks the Pavilion gardens, which have also been returned to their original Regency splendour. Do NOT miss this marvelous building when in Brighton!

We went on a snowy day and had the place to ourselves. Wonderful way to spend an hour or so. Amazing interiors and free audio tour. Only tiny gripe was the lady who voiced the audio tour was very bossy! Staff say they are replacing the present system in the spring.
