Photographer's Note

A view along the length of the Royal Pavilion and the surrounding gardens in the City of Brighton, East Sussex, England. In the distance, is the North Gate, which is the northern entrance, created and designed in a decorative Indian style. This beautiful gateway is constructed of both Bath & Portland stone on top of which sits an onion shaped copper dome. It was erected, in the same style as the pavilion, by Joseph Good in 1832 for King William IV, and is adorned with pillars, minarets and a scalloped ogive arch forms the gateway. On 4 October 1837 Queen Victoria made her first visit to Brighton and the Royal Pavilion so the North Gate was duly decorated with flowers and turned into a triumphal arch to welcome her into the city.
