Royal Pavilion Brighton

The Royal Pavilion, designed by John Nash in 1815, is in the style of the Moghul palaces of India. The idea for using this style came from Humphry Repton's Designs for the Pavilion at Brighton (1808). It was a style which he also recommended at Sezincote. The gardens of the Pavilion, which are not extensive, have been returned to their 1826 appearance. Loudon complained, in 1842, about the grounds being shut in by a high wall, instead of by an iron railing. The fault was remedied. He also wanted the surrounding houses to be cleared away, to give the Queen a larger garden. Fortunately, this was not done.
