“Felt like I had stepped into Asia”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

I adore coming here in the summer when I can sit and relax in the park listening to music playing and enjoying the beauty of the buildings. I came here when studying design and drew a lot for inspiration. Truly a beautiful place!

“Fascinating building”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Had an interesting visit there on Saturday afternoon. Was particularly impressed by the architecture and the items on display relating to King George IV and his time spent there. The chandeliers in the dining hall were fascinating as was the ceiling and the designs all around the building. Two hours well spent! Would recommend this attraction to anyone visiting Brighton.

Reviewed March 17, 2014

I didn't go inside the Pavilion due to time constraints but the architecture from the outside is really beautiful.

“better from the outside”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

expensive admission fees and a bit of an eyesore inside, much better from the outside. Avoid weekend visits if possible- very busy

“Wow!!! 3”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Amazing outside and even more amazing inside. So much to see and learn about. The audio guides are really good giving lots of information as well as video clips. Tea shop highly reccomended halfway round the visit. Our visit took about 3 hours - good value for money. If you travel to Brighton by train look out for the 2 for 1 deals on Pavilion entry which make it ven better value!
