Europe Collection 2

Brighton's popularity as a resort town was enhanced when the Prince Regent (later King George IV) decided to enlarge a modest house into what we know today as Brighton Pavillion.  This monument to "Indian Gothic" was host to George and his friends, well away from what George considered his father's "stuffy" Court.  Today, the Pavillion is open to the public and is owned by the City of Brighton.  The pebble beach welcomes sun-worshipers and the promenade there boasts a lovely merry-go-round.
