Reasons for trip

We have driven past the Pavilion many times as it is just 40 miles from home but we have now paid a visit. The Pavilion was built by George Prince Regent in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It is very opulent and 2 rooms really made us go wow!! These were the Grand Dining Room and the Music Room. The Grand Dining Room was just amazing. There is so much to look at with lavish decorations, lighting, place settings etc, it is difficult to take it all in. The adjoining kitchen was quite amazing too – very very large and the cooking pots were set up as if they were about to be cooked. The Music Room was an out and out wow! There are chairs along one side which the guide in your handset suggests you sit on or alternatively lie on the floor. The domed ceiling is lined with 10,000 cockle shells and the chandeliers if you can call them that are exquisite. The building was sold by Queen Victoria to Brighton Council and they seem to keep the building in excellent order. It is a shame that photography is not allowed inside as I was itching to get my camera out.
