The Royal Pavilion Gardens, Brighton - Brighton and Hove, City of (UA)

John Nash designed picturesque layout of serpentine walks and drives, flowery shrubberies and trees within open lawns of the royal estate. Restored in 1990 high levels of visitor use and recreational pressure affect the garden's condition and distinctiveness. Later insertions and temporary events conceal the estate's overall composition and identity. As highly socially valued urban green space but with little chance to understand the shared sense of place, Royal Pavilion & Museums have been awarded National Lottery Heritage Funding in 2019 to conserve the vulnerable Regency landscape.
