The Royal Pavilion - Brighton

Experience the magical world of Brighton's Royal Pavilion, home to three British monarchs. Decorated in the Chinese taste with an Indian exterior this Regency Palace is quite breathtaking. The famous sea-side residence was built for King George IV, and was also used by his brother William IV and their niece Queen Victoria. Originally a farmhouse, in 1787 architect Henry Holland created a neo-classical villa on the site. It was later transformed into its current Indian style by John Nash between 1815 and 1822. Magnificent decorations and fantastic furnishings have been re-created in the recent extensive structural and interior restoration program. The Pavilion offers many services to enhance your visit including guided tours, provision for disabled visitors and education facilities.

Brighton Centre

Brighton is the most popular of the seaside resorts on the south east coast of England with a single beach with a long promenade with three piers and three open air swimming pools. Its coastline was the inspiration for Graham Green's classic Brighton Rock. It began life as a small fishing port called Brighthelmstone and started to become a haven for holidaymakers when Dr Richard Russell prescribed sea-water as a cure for all ills in 1754. After the Prince of Wales built his Royal Pavilion there in 1783, fashionable Londoners began to flock to Brighton. The Royal Pavilion assumed its famous Indian Palace look in 1812. In recent years the vast modern marina with moorings for more than two thousand boats has given the area a whole new lease of life.
