This is a spectacular building, both inside and out. It has been very sympathetically restored with lots of information on how that’s been done. It’s all very ‘over the top’ of course - just as George IV planned!

The rooms inside were absolutely beautiful. Jaw Dropping. Entrance was inexpensive and the tour was educational. A Must visit for anybody going to Brighton
