Join us for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the basement and tunnel of the Royal Pavilion and discover more about life below stairs for the servants, from the rat catcher to George’s principal private secretary. The tour ends with a visit to the tunnel which led to George IV’s royal stables and riding school (now Brighton Dome).
Lasting about 45 minutes, the events will offer an unpolished, behind-the-scenes glimpse of areas of the building not normally open to the public – including its basement and famous tunnel. This was built in 1821 so that George, who was by then very overweight, could visit his riding school and stables (now Brighton Dome) in privacy.
