The Dome was built in 1806 as stables and a riding school for Prince George, later George IV.
Queen Victoria sold it to the town in 1850, and in 1867 The Dome (former stables) opened as a concert hall.
The riding school became the Corn Exchange, then a hospital in WW1 and now holds exhibitions.
The Royal Pavilion was designed by John Nash who extended and changed the original building, 1815 – 1822, for Prince George, later George IV
