The Pavilion Gardens provide a green haven in the centre of Brighton, as part of the Royal Pavilion Estate along with The Royal Pavilion, Brighton Museum & Art Gallery and Brighton Dome. The fully restored regency garden is based on John Nash’s design from 1815 and, as closely as possible, follows the original list of plants supplied to George IV.
