About this space

The Music Room is one of our most spectacular and impressive State Rooms. Its extraordinary interior is lit by nine lotus-shaped chandeliers with stunning walls decorated with rich red and gold canvases in the Chinoiserie style.

The windows are dressed with opulent blue silk-satin draperies supported by carved flying dragons. The gilded domed ceiling is made up of hundreds of plaster cockleshells creating an illusion of height, making it hard not to look up as you enter the room.

One of George IV’s greatest passions was music; within this room the King’s own band entertained guests with Handel or Italian opera. The Italian composer Gioachino Rossini performed here in 1823, Oscar Wilde also lectured and Charles Dickens gave readings in this glorious room. All in all a truly regal and unparalleled stage for a musical recital, performance, ceremony or presentation.

Due to the beautiful reproduction of the original hand knotted and fitted Axminster carpet, food and drink is not permitted in this room.

The Royal Pavilion offers a stunning backdrop for corporate events. The magnificent state rooms provide a spectacular setting for drinks receptions, lavish dinners, award ceremonies and so much more while two charming rooms are available for both day and evening events.

The Royal Pavilion’s Banqueting Room oozes splendour and extravagance with its visually stunning décor and dazzling centrepiece chandelier held in the claws of a silver dragon.

The Royal Pavilion’s extraordinary Music Room, with its dazzling gilded dome ceiling, lotus-shaped chandeliers and opulent regal furnishings, makes an ideal setting for after-dinner music performances, recitals and presentations. It was here that George IV entertained the composer Rossini in 1823.

The William IV Room is an ideal venue for both day and evening functions. It is self-contained with its own entrance from the Royal Pavilion gardens, as well as a lobby/cloakroom area and caterer’s kitchen. With its beautiful hand-painted Chinese style wallpaper, its light and airy feel, and views of the Royal Pavilion’s glorious Regency gardens, the room is able to accommodate up to 80 people for a standing drinks reception or theatre-style meeting and up to 60 for a seated buffet or dinner.

The opulent Red Drawing Room is available for small-scale corporate hospitality events and provides the perfect setting for drinks receptions, standing buffets, theatre-style and reception-style meetings and seated dinners. Retaining much of George IV’s original 1820s decorative style featuring red dragon wallpaper and palm tree pillars, guests can enjoy the surroundings of one of the most elegant rooms in the Royal Pavilion.
