Historic Brighton
Thursday 05 April 2018



 Architect Henry Holland helped George, Prince of Wales, transform a humble seaside retreat into a handsome neo-classical villa – known then as Marine Pavilion. In 1815 George, by then Prince Regent, hired the renowned John Nash to redesign the building in the fashionable ‘Oriental’ style. The spectacular conversion was completed in 1823, by which time George had become king. Brighton Museum and Art Gallery is located at the heart of the city’s cultural quarter. It’s diverse collections include historic costume, ceramics, 20th Century art and design, Ancient Egypt and local-history. Both the Pavilion and Brighton Museum are a mere five-minute walk from the sea, the historic Lanes and modern shopping-and-dining facilities.
