The audio tour is interesting, the price is reasonable and you do see a lot. Just a shame the saloon was closed and you can't see the inside of the dome. But it's a restoration project so fair is fair!

What a great place to visit. The Audio Tour is a must. Very interesting place - not sure if teenagers would be enthralled.

Lots to see in this incredibly elaborate building. The audio guide info very interesting and added to the experience. Reasonable entry price with reduction for seniors. We had an excellent lunch in the tea room there.

A marvellous afternoon of history in a beautiful and wonderfully gaudy building. Do pay the extra £2 for the audio guide; it is well worth it for the info on the details in each room.

Incredible building full of interesting stories and artefacts. Interesting history. Reasonable price. The museum visit included is nowhere near as interesting as the main building.

To visit Brighton and not take the time to go into the Royal Pavilion is almost a complete wast of time, The local authority has preserved this iconic (No Historic) beautiful look back to the sumptuous excesses of the past.

What a wonderful place and my teenaged daughter loved it too. Highly recommended. The interior is other worldly!
