Stone lace

The Royal Pavilion in Brighton (England) is a famous landmark.

Building started in 1778 and was finished in 1823 –

And the entire building was a seaside retreat for Prince George.

(And what a fabulous home it was for him! The interiors are exquisite.)

The outside of Bath stone is all stone lace, minarets and domes,

(Very much influenced by India).

Well worth a visit!

  2. “…Very much influenced by India.” Yes, Fiona, that’s exactly what I thought when I viewed these STUNNING images! They reminded me of the movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” I LOVED that film. Great story! Great cast!

    Thanks for sharing the beauty, my friend!

    Have a superb week! 🙂

  5. I’ve been past the Pavilion on a previous trip to England but I wasn’t the driver so could not stop…. but thanks for the pictures, it’s a marvellous building, and I’d love to see it in person. Next time.

  6. Lady Fi – “stone lace” is a perfect and pull-me-in description! Well done. Can you imagine such a structure being built today? And for “one person”?

  7. So cool, the oldest buildings around here might be from the Civil War, actually one I saw today was but it was in pieces and the opposite of opulent. It would be funny to hear your pooches tap, tap, tapping around what I imagine are stone floors in the pavilion.
