The Royal Pavilion

 

G

eorge, Prince of Wales (later Prince Regent and George IV) first visited Brighton in 1783 for the medicinal properties of sea water. He fell under the spell of the town and determined to have a house of his own. A modest farmhouse was converted into the neo-classical Marine Pavilion in 1787 before being transformed into the present breathtaking palace by architect John Nash between 1815 and 1823. Open everyday, except Christmas and Boxing Day, the lavish interiors are well worth a visit. Rooms are available for hire with marriages and civil partnerships performed.

he sea is an ever changing backdrop to life in Brighton. From Brighton Marina to the derelict West Pier there is so much to see and do.
