Keen walkers can amble across the clifftops of the Seven Sisters Country Park which lead to the quaint seaside town of Seaford. Of course, you may just want to sit by the marina and enjoy traditional fish and chips while watching the world saunter by. Brighton Pavilion It's hard to imagine a time when the Brighton Pavilion wasn't adding a touch of the exotic to Brighton's otherwise typical British seaside charms. Harder still to think that it actually began life as a typical farmhouse. Its fortunes were set to change though after the Prince of Wales, later King George IV, holidayed there in the 1780s while following the vogue of the time that led to the transformation of the English seaside, `dipping' in the invigorating sea. The farmhouse's first transformation was to a modest villa in 1787, known as the Marine Pavilion, which the prince filled with a fancy collection of chinoiserie. After he was declared Prince Regent, he commissioned John Nash to undertake its final transformation, to a pleasure palace in the flamboyant Indian-style for which it is now famous.
