The location of the pavilion is lovely, it has a commanding view of the seafront. It is worth visiting the cafe to sit on the balcony and watch the waves. The gallery within the pavilion has exhibitions of varying quality, some are excellent while others are just bizarre. They change every couple of months. Some recent highlights have included an exhibition of sculpture by Anthony Gormley and a giant model of a bus hanging over the edge of the roof! The gift shop has an excellent range of art/architecture books and art themed novelties. The theatre in the pavilion holds a wide range of shows and exhibitions, something for everyone. Personally I find the best thing about the pavilion is it's classic art-deco architecture. It is recognised as an important building and the stairway in particular is very attractive.
