Royal Pavilion is a significant architectural landmark for Poundbury and offers a luxurious collection of twenty apartments that brings to Dorchester design standards normally associated with Knightsbridge in London.
Each apartment has been individually designed by Ben Pentreath to provide beautiful interiors, generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings and French doors that open onto individual private terraces for al fresco dining overlooking Poundbury. The accommodation has been designed for contemporary living, with luxury kitchens, en-suite bathrooms and dressing rooms, underfloor heating and private parking. Quite simply, these four penthouses are probably the most unique new luxury apartments in the South-West of England.
Between Queen Mother Square and Pavilion Green, this exceptional new apartment building has its roots in the scale and design of traditional grand civic buildings, with classical stone colonnades, beautiful terraces with ornate ironwork and a signature new tower with triumphal arch.
Named after one of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother's racehorses, Royal Pavilion also borrows its lineage from the famous seaside retreat built at Brighton in 1787 for George Prince of Wales, who became the Prince Regent in 1811.

Poundbury is a master-planned community on the western edge of Dorchester, the historic County town of Dorset. Covering 400 acres of Duchy of Cornwall Land, it is the vision of
hrh The Prince of Wales, who, using the renowned Master Planner Leon Krier, has achieved a truly integrated and mixed-use development.
Poundbury is designed with a set of key human-centred principles - to put people before cars, integrated places of work with homes and invest in buildings of exceptionally high construction quality and aesthetic standards. Since breaking ground in 1993, the community has achieved worldwide acclaim from architects, town planners, academics and house builders, both for its intelligent design and success in creating a highly desirable and diverse new community.
Queen Mother Square is the centre of life in Poundbury, with its collection of independent shops - including a butcher, Waitrose supermarket and The Duchess of Cornwall Inn.
Smaller squares, beautiful gardens and wilder areas of parkland are woven into the fabric of Poundbury, including the formal gardens and expansive lawns of Pavilion Green stretching north of Royal Pavilion.
A short journey from both Dorchester South and Dorchester West stations, residents of Royal Pavilion are easily connected to the South West trains network, with direct trains into London Waterloo. The A35 and A37 open up all of Dorset's wonderful landscape, which is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as providing easy access to its dramatic coastline from Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast to Corfe Castle and the Isle of Purbeck.
