A Grade I-listed, former royal residence, the Royal Pavilion was designed, from 1787, by architect Henry Holland, as a pleasure palace for the Prince Regent, later King George IV. The domes and minarets were added later by the architect John Nash, who extended the building from 1815. It exemplifies the Indo-Saracenic style prevalent in India during the 19th century. This in-depth tour of the building and its contents includes such highlights as the recently restored saloon, with silver and ‘pearl white’ wall decoration, specially woven silk panels and luxurious drapery.
The Royal Pavilion has two floors, the ground floor is accessible to wheelchair users, but access to the first floor is via a staircase only. There is an accessible toilet on the ground floor, and wheelchairs are available to use on request.
