It’s easy to navigate Brighton’s most famous attractions. The Royal Pavilion is a must-see in the city. This used to be the seaside retreat for King George IV and is now one of the most opulent buildings in the UK. Within the renovated stable block of the Royal Pavilion is the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery. This museum features an enthralling collection of 20th-century artworks and artefacts. The Royal Pavilion is located in the heart of the cultural quarter of Brighton, near the North Laine shopping areas and a few minutes walk away from the sea. The Royal Pavilion is only a 15-minute walk from the Brighton Railway Station.
Brighton Pier is another popular attraction in the city and a great place to experience Brighton’s bohemian side. Entertain yourself with some amusement rides and game arcades. From the Pier, take a walk to the west, where you will find the West Pier. This historic pier was closed down in 1975 and started to collapse to the sea in 2002. It has since caught fire twice, marking a sad ending for this historic landmark where the likes of Stan Laurel and Charlie Chaplin used to perform.
