We had a few hours to kill so decided to visit. 13.50GBP an extra 2 GBP for a headset to enter. Interesting, showing the ostentationess of the times and how out of touch the monarchy was with the people or simply didn’t care. Had a tea shop on second floor and nice grounds. Worth a visit

The Royal Pavillon is the only British palace owned by neither the Royal Family nor the Nation. The royal apartments are truly sumptuous. The decorations were influenced by what the Prince Regent, and his architects, imagined an eastern palace looked like. There are many original fine paintings and objet d'art. Audio description players are available to hire but there are plenty of signs describing the rooms and their contents, each room has a guide who is happy to answer questions.
On the minus side, there is not enough seating for the more senior visitors (like me). I was also disappointed that no photography whatsoever is permitted.
Overall I enjoyed my visit and would recommend at least two hours to do it justice,

Had trouble finding way in and very disappointed that very few items had any information displayed about them photography not allowed even without flash and very few rooms had any seating for less abled visitors . We are members of the National trust and have also visited royal palaces. , so we are used to visiting such places but cannot think of a good word to say about Brighton Pavillion

I have mixed feelings about the Royal Pavilion. On the one hand, it is an extraordinary and quite unique piece of architecture. On the other, it is a monument to self-indulgence. I have always enjoyed its Indianesque exterior. Today I visited the interior for the first time. Inside, the building has a more Chinese influence. It is opulent, sumptuous, but very much an expression of wealth and privilege. There is a marked contrast between the rooms inhabited by the King and courtiers, and their servants. To be sure, it is a magnificent building, perhaps the ultimate expression of the English holiday home. But, it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth

The building is a real masterpiece no doubt in that and is a really must see when visiting Brighton but the thing which gives a really bad impression is the that this amazing building is maintained on its outside looks. Paint is falling off the walls , the walls are mouldy and black on the facade. It definitely needs to be refreshed soon .
