The Royal Pavilion was formerly residence to the Royal Family for pleasure, a seaside home. Due to the creation of the train line from London to Brighton, the Royal family felt they had no privacy and no longer resided here. In the first world war, this grand complex was transformed into a Military hospital for Indian Soldiers serving the British Army.
Now a museum, the Royal Pavilion is available for all to see and learn.
