An unusual mix of classical and Indian architectural elements was used in the building of Royal Pavilion, making it one of the most exotic-looking structures in the UK. Built in three stages between 1787 and 1823, the site was designed to be a seaside retreat for the Prince Regent, later known as King George IV. Constructed in the Indo-Saracenic style prevalent in India for most of the 19th century, the palace includes the most extravagant chinoiserie interiors, a style that reflects Chinese artistic influences, ever executed in the British Isles. When you visit this popular attraction, stop by the admission desk to pick up a free multimedia guide, which includes an audio tour, interview clips with members of the staff, photographs, and videos.

Royal Pavilion Reviews
除了外觀建築物美外，內部裝潢更美，推薦去參觀，不去會後悔喔！！ 因為裡面禁止拍攝，所以只好用自己的雙眼記錄美好的一切。 more »In addition to the beauty of the exterior building, the interior decoration is more beautiful, push to go, do not go to regret oh! ! Because the surface is forbidden to shoot, so we have to use their eyes to see all the good things.
This palace reminded me of Versailles - a King trying to impress everyone with his wealth. It has been restored to it's Regency best with gold, silks, and plush everywhere. Not interactive so more for... more »
Great visit. Exteriors have an Indian style and Chinese theme for interiors. The ticket price is 15 pounds per person, with 2 pounds more you can take the audio guide which is very helpful. The palace is in good condition, you can admire all the original furnitures and ornaments. Moreover, the dragon-shaped chandeliers are wonderful. At the second floor, there is a little tea room where you can sit and enjoy the view of the garden from the balcony. Super recommended!
Growing up in Brighton seeing the exterior of the Palace as I passed regularly but never stepping foot inside, until now! I was absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to see what was behind this Indian inspired building. To my surprise the interior isstill of flamboyant oriental designs. It's a great historical building and a must do when visiting Brighton! I would recommend the audio guides whilst walking around! You can also enjoy tea and cakes on the rooftop balcony.
