The Royal Pavilion
If you walk East from the South Lanes, you will eventually come across the Royal Pavilion.
Originally built as a pleasure palace for King George IV, the Royal Pavilion is now a famous Landmark in Brighton’s City Centre. The palace was built in 1780 and was extended in 1815 to the Royal Pavilion that stands today. It passed down through a number of Royals and was eventually sold by Queen Victoria to the City of Brighton in 1850 for £50,000.
There have been a number of setbacks in the restoration of the building throughout the years which will inevitably continue, however, the City of Brighton has worked hard to restore the building to the original grandeur envisioned by King George IV back in the 1800’s.
The building is now a popular tourist attraction where visitors can walk through a number of rooms, including the royal bedrooms, the grand kitchen and the banqueting rooms.
