821 Queen Adelaide

422 Queen Adelaide

Connections with Brighton and Hove : This Queen was the wife of King William IV who succeeded George IV and who, like him, made some use of the Royal Pavilion. The earliest monarch in the world to travel by train, although by then she was the Dowager Queen. Her little railway carriage, specially adapted with a small extension for her feet so she could travel overnight, is still preserved at the National Railway Museum. The couple were popular in Brighton and made regular visits until the King’s death after only seven years on the throne. Queen’s Park in Brighton and Adelaide Crescent in Hove are named after her.
