Royal Pavilion in Brighton

When visiting Brighton on the hottest day of the year   I also went for a wander in the grounds of the Royal Pavilion. It used to be a royal residence and a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales who later became King George IV. Apparently, he was known for his extravagant lifestyle. The exotic architecture in style of the Indo-Gothic and beautiful gardens provided a shelter and retreat from a busy summer beach.brpbrp11brp1brp9brp3brp7brp8p11brp16brp12

  1. This is such an exotic looking building! I must visit it again! One of my nieces lives in Brighton and another niece did some of the restoration in one of the rooms in the Pavilion and I need to go and see how she got on! Your photos are very good and the flowers in the garden look lovely!
