Silks and a ‘riot of colour’ in the Royal Pavilion Saloon

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

One of the highlights of our year has been opening the restored Royal Pavilion Saloon to the public.

The restoration work took many years, and the talents of skilled creators outside of our team. The video below by Humphries Weaving shows how the silks were created.

Blogger and Visitor Services Officer Naomi Daw has also recently published a blog post about the ‘riot of colour’ that can be found in the decorative design of the room.

The best way to learn more is to visit, where you can not only see the Saloon in its glittering glory, but can also view a temporary exhibition about the restoration process.

You can even whet your appetite online with these interactive 360 views of the room.
