Weekend Getaways At A Royal Palace

Treat yourself to a holiday fit for a queen. Visit Royal Palaces past and present and stay at cottages on the grounds, or at swish hotels or houses nearby...

Architect John Nash built the Royal Pavilion for the Prince Regent, who retreated there to flee his parents’ disapproval at the relationship with the Catholic Mrs Fitzherbert. A fanciful palace, it is awash with Chinese dragons, fantastic motifs and flashy silverware, as well as boasting the latest mod-cons of the time: flushing loos. Stay at the rather more understated, achingly fashionable Hotel du Vin in The Lanes. For more details, see www.visitbrighton.com
