Beautiful historic place to visit for all ages. Heaped in history with beautiful surroundings. Visit the stately rooms as well as having a lovely meal in the gorgeous Cafe. The gift shop is not to be missed as beautiful bargains to be brought inside. A place you will always want to come back too.

A must visit historical building for every visitor to Brighton surely! George the IV had the Royal Pavilion built as a party pad and what a party pad it is. Full of early 19th century decadence with influences from the world over, its just as impressive today as it must have been 200 years ago.

I have visited the pavilion twice in as many years and have always enjoyed it! Its wonderful if you like history and would definitely recommend the audio guides as you learn so much more this way!

Once a year, the Royal Pavilion opens it's doors for free entry to everyone, Sunday 15th January was the date for 2017 and boy was it popular.... I queued for an hour (in the rain) to get in! Usual entry fee is £12.30, and it is worth the money. It is more than 5 years since I last visited and... More

This Royal pavilion is very grand, mainly decorated in oriental furnishings. The audio tour was really informative and a 'must' for any visitor. The dining hall is spectacular. Make sure you wander around the outside as it is a stunning building as well.
