Sea Life Centre Brighton
Sea Life Centre Brighton is one of several marine centres within a chain of venues that serves as both an entertainment attraction and an animal conservation centre. Brighton's Sea Life Centre contains over 150 different species including seals, turtles and sharks. All of these are housed within environments that resemble their natural habitat. Many of the tanks have been designed to enable visitors to walk underneath them to see to see the animals at close range but without disturbing them. The Sea Life Centre Brighton is houses within an old Victorian building and claims to be the oldest aquarium in the world. Admission prices are: Adult – 8.40 (10 Euros) Child (under 12) - £6.00 (7 Euros) Discounts are available for large groups and Internet bookings. It is open daily from 10am until 6pm (last admission 5pm). Animal feeding times can be found on the website.
The Royal Pavilion
The Royal Pavilion in Brighton was built in the early part of the 19th century as a Royal residence for the Prince Regent, who later became King George IV. It was largely designed by the architect John Nash and has an exterior that is built in the style of an Indian mausoleum, whist the interior is influenced by both Indian and Chinese designs. It was primarily used as a seaside retreat for the young Prince, where it is said that he used it to entertain his secret lover, Mrs Fitzhubert away from the scornful eyes of his family in London who disapproved of the relationship because she was catholic. Following the death of King George IV it was used on a few occasions by his successors King William IV and Queen Victoria but neither of these monarchs liked the Royal Pavilion very much. They felt it lacked privacy, which became more of a problem after Brighton was connected by rail to London in 1841. In 1850 the local council acquired the building. Today the Royal Pavilion is a popular tourist attraction. Details of opening times and admission prices are available on the website.
