The Royal Pavilion in Brighton was built in the early part of the 19th century as a Royal residence for the Prince Regent, who later became King George IV. It was largely designed by the architect John Nash and has an exterior that is built in the style of an Indian mausoleum, whist the interior is influenced by both Indian and Chinese designs.
It was primarily used as a seaside retreat for the young Prince, where it is said that he used it to entertain his secret lover, Mrs Fitzhubert away from the scornful eyes of his family in London who disapproved of the relationship because she was catholic.
Following the death of King George IV it was used on a few occasions by his successors King William IV and Queen Victoria but neither of these monarchs liked the Royal Pavilion very much. They felt it lacked privacy, which became more of a problem after Brighton was connected by rail to London in 1841. In 1850 the local council acquired the building.
Today the Royal Pavilion is a popular tourist attraction. Details of opening times and admission prices are available on the website.
Kent and East Sussex Railway
This rural light railway runs 10.5 miles along the Rother Valley from Tenterden to Bodiam with stops at Rolvenden, Wittersham Road and Northiam. Tenterden was by-passed during the railway building of the 19th century, but a light railway, the Rother Valley Railway, was eventually opened in 1900. A light railway was defined as cheaply constructed with a short life, with reconstruction to a higher standard hoped for from profits. It continued in this form until railway nationalisation in 1948, but losses to road traffic meant that the line closed to passengers in 1954 and to goods traffic in 1961. Enthusiasts managed to save the line from demolition and upgrade the track, and it was reopened gradually between 1974 and 2000.
It now operates as a tourist railway running trains pulled by steam engines. Themed events, including a Santa Special, are staged, and a Pullman dining car runs on certain dates. Travellers can buy a daily hop-on hop-off ticket to visit stops on the route. Free car parking is available at Tenterden and Northiam stations. A timetable is posted on the website.
