The Royal Pavillion taken this evening as I left from work.

George IV became Prince Regent in 1811 when his father was thought to be mad, and was crowned in 1820. He died in 1830 leaving a rich art collection and an architectural legacy including Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.

If you haven't been there it's Indian design on the outside with a Chinese themed decorated interior.
