1.Introduction of the monument

The Royal Pavilion is a former royal residence located in Brighton, England. Beginning in 1787, it was built in three stages as a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales who became Prince Regent in 1811.


After the death of George IV in 1830, his successor King William IV also stayed in the Pavilion on his frequent visits to Brighton.

Queen Victoria disliked Brighton and the lack of privacy at the Pavilion.

After the last visit of the Queen, the gouvernement decided to sell the Pavilion in 1845 but the Brighton Commissioner and the Brighton Vesty petitioned the gouvernement to sell the Pavillon to tow, for 53,000 £ in 1850.
