If in Brighton well worth a visit. A very different experience to the usual 'historical' houses I have visited in the past. Make sure you leave enough time to listen to the audio guide. So much information is imparted to the listener which will definitely enhance your visit.

Me and my friends visited Brighton for 1 day and this is a must see! Such a beautiful scene, ideal for a picnic. When we visited, there were some kinds of festivities going on which added to the cosy atmoshpere.

Well, what to say about the Pavillion. Very opulent and quirky to start. Very interesting just thinking about how they built this back in the day. Could spend a fill day here. The only bad thing was the school trips going through the same time as us. Very noisy as immature teenagers do not go with trying to enjoy the... More

This place captivates you from the outside but you must take a visit around the inside as you will blown away by the sheer beauty and detail everywhere you look. From huge chandelier's to sculptured ceilings, the wonderful Banqueting room and it's history of becoming a hospital for the injured during the first World War and of course Queen Victoria's...

A fabulous place full of history. The electronic guide was so informative telling you every historical aspect of the various rooms. You feel so overwhelmed by the rooms as there is so much to look at. The souvenir shop has lots to chose from but can be fairly expensive. Nice coffee shop too but again fairly expensive.

We spent several hours on a quiet Tuesday viewing this beautiful building, furnishings and decor. It is magnificent. Afternoon tea in the cafe was lovely.

Oh, this place is something that I will never forget till my death. The beautiful Royalty in every corner will make you feel like you are in a dream or in a storybook of Beauty and the beast. Give it a try,its 15-20 pounds and I promise you will not regret.

Takes about 80 to 90 minutes to walk around. Worth it at.... £12.30 PER PERSON ! You can have an audio commentary to accompany your visit if you wish.

The Royal Pavilion is located in the city center and a short walk from the beach promenade and the pier of Britton A huge and impressive structure, with Indian/Oriental exterior and interior architectural elements and design. Exploring the beautiful gardens surrounding it and especially walking through exciting rooms and halls, llets us jumping back in time and a "tangible taste"... More
