June Squares | Roofs

It’s June and another 30 day challenge from Becky.  ‘The Life of B’ This month she is looking for a roof or roofs or even rooves. Follow the link for the rules.

Brighton Pavilion, East Sussex, England

The spectacular seaside palace of the Prince Regent (George IV) transformed by John Nash between 1815 and 1823 into one of the most dazzling and exotic buildings in the British Isles.

June Square | 8th June

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Yay! I have yet to see this…always been too mesmerised by the ruins of the old West Pier!!

    1. We almost missed it on driving past. Unfortunately it was closed on my visit. And we never did go back to Brighton.

        1. Oh, don’t mention trains running! OH back up to Shropshire tomorrow. Last month he went via Brum with only one change at Brum, same on the way back. Tomorrow that’s no longer possible – 3 changes. And coming back 4 changes including a bus for part of it!! What on earth are they thinking of? The line exists, the trains run in one direction so why not the other? Bloody stupid and frustrating and expensive too – and he couldn’t even reserve seats this time!!

        2. Aaaargh….exactly – I no longer have some of the freedom I had to do cultural things because of the damn trains….and I don’t have forever now

      1. It’s an amazing building, but I was surprised at how hidden it is, expecting it to be in a big open space. I have another exotic one coming up in the month.

  2. It is such an extraordinary building isn’t it. Remember well the year it reopened after an extensive refurbishment as within weeks the great storm damaged one of these fabulous domes. I think it was the one above the music room.

    1. It was closed for refurbishment the time I went and took this photo. I was surprised at how hidden it is.

  3. Exotic is right. I was very surprised when I saw the location of these. One day I’ll have to come to England.

    (PS I’m safely home and well-slept – Great to spend the day with Gilly, Jo and Lindy. Would’ve been good to have you too.)

    1. Glad you had a good trip back home. I can imagine how it must have been with the three of you together! Non-stop chatter 😉
