There are so many amazing things to see. On the down side it's expensive to enter, and you can not take photos. We went towards the end of school term and there were 100's of children, I would avoid it if there are so many groups again. It is full of interesting stories and artifacts. Allow enough time to wander... More

People would mostly be in Brighton for the Pier, seashore or the newly built i360 experience. However, hidden away from all this is the Royal Pavilion. This period building is reminiscent of olden day castles of kings and stories aplenty ! One can read a lot of interesting history while walking through the insides. The building architecture is unique and... More

A must see if you are travelling to Brighton. The dining room is amazing with big dragons holding up massive chandeliers. Unfortunately you cannot take photo's which is a shame. Also you have to pay for the headsets but I asked for the wifi code and followed this. It was ok, could do with a childrens version like Hampton Court... More

That's something really nice in brighton, amazing outside and inside. Surrounded with small pot and park with you can have a picnic or just read a book. Insime yoy can find all the story of the pavilion. Highly recommended.

Just beautiful, historic. We went to a Carol service and would go again. It was magical. It is a unique building with a fascinating history and connection with overseas.

If you are visiting Brighton the Royal Pavilion should not be missed. All the rooms are palacial and the music room is out of this world. I would suggest having afternoon tea here so you can get a birds eye view of the gardens.

This was my second visit to the Pavilion, the first being about twenty years ago, so I knew I would be seeing it from a different angle. I was with a group and we had Darren as our guide. This man was amazing and almost personified George the Fourth, as there was nothing he did not know about the King.... More

The most magnificent building outside and even more so inside. Best value for money is to join their membership! We spent four hours with our teenage grandchildren and intend to go back on our own for another look!

Had slovenly morning reviewing the Royal Pavillion had coffee in the cafe great experience to see some history and fine building. We followed this with a trip to the museum. Tip if you take out annual membership this is almost recovered if you visit both. Even more so with return visits it would definitely pay.
