Peak Season

We are approaching our peak season and are currently experiencing a surge in visitor numbers.

While we are able to accommodate more visitors, we would advise those wishing to avoid the crowds to plan their visit after 3pm as this is usually our quieter time.

We would recommend that groups book in advance, where possible, so we may direct you to a designated time slot. This will allow us to minimise crowds and help ensure everyone’s enjoyment of the Royal Pavilion and its grounds.

Group visits

The Royal Pavilion is very busy during July and August, especially at the weekends, and during this time we do not admit any unbooked groups. Please call our bookings team on 03000 290901 if you are bringing a group and they will give you a time slot for entry. Visit our Travel trade and groups page for more information.

Storage Facilities

We regret that we do not have the facilities to store any luggage and in line with many historic buildings large luggage and suitcases are not permitted inside the palace due to conservation reasons.

We do have a buggy park but luggage and other items must not be left in this room.
