Royal Pavilion

The Royal Pavilion, a unique and extraordinary building, has played a key role in the development of Brighton and its international reputation.

Completed in 1823, this exotic, oriental fantasy is a testament to the flamboyant character and sophisticated taste of George IV, its discerning patron; but its evolution also reflects other royal residents, William IV and Queen Victoria, and its life under municipal management since 1850.

Unlike most country houses and important residences, the Royal Pavilion was conceived as a "work of art", designed as an entity. The interior was orchestrated from the floor up, building to a climax in the magnificent ceilings of the Banqueting and Music rooms.

The building has been superbly restored and visitors today can enjoy the sumptuous decorations and the outstanding quality of the furniture and furnishings in this Regency palace.
