Full description

The Royal Pavilion has a colorful history stretching back 200 years. Built as the seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, it has also served as a civic building, First World War hospital, and has become an icon of Brighton. In the mid-1780s George, Prince of Wales, rented a small lodging house overlooking a fashionable promenade in Brighton. Brighton was developing from a decayed fishing town to an established seaside retreat for the rich and famous, being close to London, and after George was sworn in as Prince Regent in 1811 he commissioned John Nash to begin the transformation from modest villa into the magnificent palace that we see today. Walk through the lavish state rooms on the ground floor including the banqueting room, the music room, the magnificent recently restored saloon, and the great kitchen. Explore further rooms upstairs, including Queen Victoria's bedroom. Learn about the use of the building as a military hospital for Indian soldiers during the first world war.

It is well worth a visit. The restoration work is really good. The glimpse of the extravagant life styles of the very rich is mind boggling I can’t understand why there wasn’t a revolution in the U.K. The only downside was the fact that the tearoom is closed presumably because of renovation work.

Wonderful building, some excellent room guides. It would have been helpful to have better information about exactly where to find the front door. I was with someone who has problems walking and we walked to the wrong back of the building. Signage was poor. It would have been helpful if there had been some little captions to some of the more interesting pieces. One guide started to tell us about the dining table, broke off in mid stream and walked away as his shift was ending. Apart from that - we thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Very impressive and intelligently presented site. I particularly enjoyed the smartphone commentary although I preferred the text version. Another highlight was the display of satirical drawings with their brief explanations. The opulence and extravagance of the restored rooms surprised and delighted me. Last time we visited Brighton the Royal Pavilion was closed for renovations and I was so disappointed. I feel it was worth the wait!
