Royal Pavilion. Brighton, England. One of the first places I went in England

In King George IV had the Royal Pavilion built to entertain fashionable Regency society. Today, Brighton’s most famous landmark displays the Indian architecture and Chinese interiors that John Nash used to give the Pavilion its unique identity.

Benches at Brighton pier

The West Pier, Brighton The West Pier was built in 1866 by Eugenius Birch and has been closed and deteriorating since 1975. The pier caught fire in 2003. Firefighters were unable to save the building from destruction because the collapsed walkway prevented them from reaching it. High winds caused the middle of the pier to collapse completely in June 2004. Hopes for restoring the pier have now ceased.
