Royal Hotel

This hotel has a bit of history, best explained on the plaque on the other side of the road (Royal Terrace), next to the gardens.

There is a hotel wing named in honour of Princess Alexandra, from the time she used to visit there.

Longest pier in the world!

See it to believe it!

Pretty gardens with views over the waters
