    Pavilion Theatre highlights

    Pavilion Theatre offers a stunning view of the historic architecture dating to the Victorian era when the building was first constructed in 1878. At the start of the twentieth century, the former glass-roofed garden pavilion was transformed into a playhouse and theatre with the addition of film screens to the stage in 1913.

    This building would go on to host both live performances and film screenings until it was altered into a restaurant in the 1980s. Now, guests can view film screenings and gaze at the stunning architectural details around the restored theatre.
