Royal Pavilion

Highly recommended
This incredible, Oriental confection in stucco and stone reflects the brilliant personality of George, Prince of Wales (1762-1811), later to become King George IV. A year after his clandestine marriage to the young Roman Catholic commoner, Mrs. Fitzherbert, " Prinny" rented Brighton House and commissioned John Nash and his tasteful interior designers to create a flamboyant setting for the extravagant festivities of his seaside court, a veritable symbol of the Regency period.
