About Royal Pavilion

This architectural abnormality was originally built as a royal residence and pleasure palace for King George IV while he was still the Prince Regent. Its distinctive Indian design makes it stand out amongst the rest of Brighton's Regency buildings and over the years it has become one of the most popular attractions in the city.


The interior of the Pavilion has been magnificently restored and the attention to decorative and structural detail leaves many visitors astounded. The small grounds are also worth walking round and are a very popular place for residents of the city to meet, relax and listen to the array of talented buskers and musicians living in the city.
