The Royal Pavillion - Brighton

This one I took some time ago of the Royal Pavillion. It opened to the local residents recently for no charge and we took the opportunity to have another look around. You forget just how spectacular the place is and just how much of a folly it became.

Apparently Queen Victoria didn't like the place very much as it was very much on show to the public and she sold it back to Brighton and Hove - this was after stripping the place bare of it's wealth and ornaments.

Apologies for the poor photoshopping and smeared edges - I'll try to get better at capturing images in their natural state.
