Dress for Excess – Fashion in Regency England

This major fashion exhebition will run for a full year and celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Regency Act by looking at the life of George IV as Prince, Regent and King through the clothes of the late Georgian period and how they have influenced fashions today.

The king’s silk and velvet coronation robe, trimmed in ermine and over 16 feet in length, will be on public display for the first time in 30 years. Other clothes in the exhibition include a dandy’s costume, military uniform worn at the Battle of Waterloo, and neoclassical influenced silk and muslin gowns.

The costumes are displayed in rooms in the Royal Pavilion, which is only 10 minutes away from Sea Spray. So you might meet the staff of Sea Spray while collecting new ideas for our unique and colourful hotel.
