Royal Pavilion garden in Brighton is being restored

The Royal Pavilion and its surrounding gardens are being restored to its former glory. The estate was designed in 1815 for King George IV. Over £8000 has been raised to help restore the former season residence of the former king.

The garden was restored to its original design in the 1990s but now a lot of flowers and plant need replacing. The garden was designed for King George IV, who was the Prince Regent for nearly 10 years, by an architect called John Nash.

The £8000, which was raised by the Royal Pavilion and the Museums Foundation, will help pay for the renewed planting of flowers in the heritage beds on the estate as well as designing a new flower bed in the south gardens. The flowers and plants in the gardens will reflect the pavilion domes and spires.

The councillor in charge of tourism and a trustee of the foundation said he hoped the reconstruction of the garden would lead to the pavilion be becoming, “a world-class heritage attraction”.
