Royal Pavillion in Brighton

The entrance to the Royal Pavillion

When we were in England last month, we went down to Rye. On the way back, we stopped at theRoyal Pavillion in Brighton. I will copy the wikipedia beginning below.

The Royal Pavilion, and surrounding gardens, also known as the Brighton Pavilion, is a Grade I listed 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 the Prince Regent in 1811, and King George IV in 1820. Wikipedia

It is in a style called Indo-Saracenic which is the style that England used to buildings in India in the late 1800s. You could also call it over-the-top Kitsch-y. But inside it is a riot of color and styles.
