My first visit to Brighton Pavilion: absolutely first class. The salon restoration is worth a visit in its own right. The fabulous large banqueting room is awe inspiring. Thank goodness it was saved by Brighton Corporation for the entire world to see!

We were delighted to find out that dogs were allowed in the pallace garden and we had a great wander around. Lots of people sitting about admiring the palace and a little cafe in the gardens.

Yes, The Royal Pavilion is a long way from where it shows on the little map inset. It is much nearer the sea. If you tap on the little map it will bring up a bigger map. Expand that and look just east of the A23 a few... More
