811 John Nash

433 John Nash

Connections with Brighton and Hove : When the Prince Regent wanted to build his palace by the sea, he employed one of the leading architects of the day to do the designs for him. John Nash, who was also responsible for many buildings in London including Regent Street, proved equal to the task. Using Indian influences for the outside design and Chinese for the interior, he created a unique building which has remained the symbol of Brighton. The Pavilion has been restored many times and the gardens have also been redesigned in the manner to which Nash drew them up more than two centuries ago. However Nash was not thanked for his pains. He left in 1822 under a cloud because of the enormous costs of the palace which had overrun by thousands of pounds.
