An unusual mix of classical and Indian architectural elements was used in the building of Royal Pavilion, making it one of the most exotic-looking structures in the UK. Built in three stages between 1787 and 1823, the site was designed to be a seaside retreat for the Prince Regent, later known as King George IV. Constructed in the Indo-Saracenic style prevalent in India for most of the 19th century, the palace includes the most extravagant chinoiserie interiors, a style that reflects Chinese artistic influences, ever executed in the British Isles. When you visit this popular attraction, stop by the admission desk to pick up a free multimedia guide, which includes an audio tour, interview clips with members of the staff, photographs, and videos.

Royal Pavilion Reviews
除了外觀建築物美外，內部裝潢更美，推薦去參觀，不去會後悔喔！！ 因為裡面禁止拍攝，所以只好用自己的雙眼記錄美好的一切。 more »In addition to the beauty of the exterior building, the interior decoration is more beautiful, push to go, do not go to regret oh! ! Because the surface is forbidden to shoot, so we have to use their eyes to see all the good things.
This palace reminded me of Versailles - a King trying to impress everyone with his wealth. It has been restored to it's Regency best with gold, silks, and plush everywhere. Not interactive so more for... more »
A beautiful royal home filled with opulence and beautifully maintained- well worth a visit. Indian on the outside, oriental on the inside. It is £13.50 entry for a 3 day pass. Or £16.50 for a 3 day pass which includes the museum too (located across the garden).Definitely would suggest paying the extra £2 for the audio tour. There is no entry charge to the gardens, and both the Pavilion and museum is free entry to residents of Brighton and Hove (must show proof). The tea rooms is delightful and definitely worth a visit. Top service and delicious, well priced food. -No dress code - No photography
Happy and knowledgeable guides show you King George IV summer palace extravaganza. Worth visiting Brighton just to see it. Excellent cafe too. Train station maybe 15 minutes walk away but uphill walk going back. Use park and ride if going by car.
