I can tick two places from my list:
2. Royal Pavilion
While historically significant, please don’t ever come to England just to see Stonehenge. You will be disappointed. I’m glad I got to see it, but we really were going to drive by it on our way to a meeting. The rocks really aren’t as impressive as you might expect them to be. And…my new shoes got muddy.
The Royal Pavilion was worth the trip to Brighton to see it. It was a royal home (not really big enough to be called a palace or a castle, in my opinion) built by one of the King Georges. Queen Victoria used it as one of her residences at one point in her life, but it wasn’t big enough for her huge family.
Parts of the Royal Pavilion are very Oriental in their decorations, but other parts are more Polynesian. I preferred the Polynesian rooms. The banquet hall and kitchen were very impressive. It would be a great place to have parties!
The King who built this place had a thing for snakes. I hate snakes. There are snakes in some of the decorations. Ick!
