About this space
The Royal Pavilion’s notable Great Kitchen, sometimes also known as the ‘King’s Kitchen’ was modern for its time. George who was obsessed with food and dining conceived this kitchen and would often escort and impress his VIP guests with this room showcasing his new innovative facilities. It was truly one of the first ‘show kitchens’ in the world.
This spacious room, taking its light from skylights in the roof was not without its own ‘taste of the Orient’, in line with the rest of the Royal Pavilion’s decorative scheme, it incorporates cast-iron columns ornamented with abundant painted copper palm leaves.
This room now serves as a fantastic setting for a banquet style dinner or a drinks reception and it is said that George himself at times dined in this kitchen. The Royal Pavilion’s recipe for a great event? Drinks in the Great Kitchen, followed by a seated dinner in the state Banqueting Room.
