Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton and Hove

Built for the Prince Regent, later King George IV, in stages between 1787 and 1823, the Royal Pavilion is remarkable for its exotic appearance both inside and out. This magnificent royal pleasure palace was revered by fashionable regency society and is still a distinctive landmark for Brighton and Hove today. The Royal Pavilion is also home to some of the finest collections and examples of the chinoiserie style in Britain.
