The Royal Pavilion – first built as a pleasure palace for the Prince Regent, who later became King George IV – has been selected as a winner of the 2018 Experts’ Choice award from TripExpert.

The award, which is aimed at celebrating the best hotels, restaurants and attractions, is handed to fewer than two per cent of attractions worldwide.

The accolade was based on more than million reviews from 85 publications; Experts’ Choice takes into account only professional reviews from travel guides, magazines, newspapers and other respected sources.

With praise from Lonely Planet, Fodor’s and Michelin Guide, Royal Pavilion is one of the best-rated attractions in Brighton on TripExpert.

Reviews from experts such as Fodor’s Travel said: “The city’s most remarkable building is this delightfully over-the-top domed and pinnacled fantasy. “

The Michelin Guide said: “This incredible, Oriental confection in stucco and stone reflects the brilliant personality of George, Prince of Wales (1762-1811), later to become King George IV. “

Royal Pavilion has also received TripExpert’s Best of Brighton award.

Cllr Alan Robins, the city council’s lead member for tourism, said; “We are delighted the Royal Pavilion has been awarded this prestigious travel award.

“The fact that travel experts from all over the world have rated their visit to the Royal Pavilion so highly is a wonderful tribute to all our dedicated and hardworking staff.”
