The Royal Pavilion, an extraordinary and extravagant palace. It is truly a dazzling building and definitely worth a visit while in Brighton! Brighton’s palace, the Royal Pavilion lies on the seaside of the city and was owned by the Prince Regent (George IV). The palace was transformed into an exotic building (both inside and out) by John Nash between 1815 and 1822. There is much to see inside the palace, as it houses various works of art which includes original pieces lent by Her Majesty the Queen! In addition, the furniture is truly amazing and there is also a display of Regency silver-gilt. Be sure to check out the Royal Pavilion Tearoom’s balcony for a fabulous view over the Pavilion Gardens as well.
