Exquisite items of art and furniture owned by George IV will return to the Royal Pavilion, Brighton & Hove for the first time in 170 years.

For this unique project, over 120 remarkable decorative works of art that were originally commissioned by the Prince Regent will be relocated from Buckingham Palace and reunited in their previous setting of the Royal Pavilion.

They will be on display for approximately two years while essential building works in the East Wing of Buckingham Palace take place, providing a once in a lifetime opportunity for visitors to see these magnificent items in their former home.

Items lent by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection include majestic 15-foot high porcelain pagodas and the Kylin Clock, an extraordinary golden extravaganza featuring turquoise Chinese lions.
