  • Osborne House is a popular attraction on the Isle of Wight. Known fondly as Queen Victoria’s palace-by-the-sea this estate has an exquisitely furnished house and terraced gardens with panoramic views leading down to its own private beach on the Solent.

    The House was built in 1845 for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a country retreat.

    It was Queen Victorias family home where she spent time with Prince Albert and nine children. You can see the family rooms in the royal apartments (including the richly decorated Durbar Room) and the state rooms on a visit as well as the grounds with its walled garden.

    All the mums will want to see the miniature Swiss Cottage built to teach the royal children household management!

    In the Summer months, you can visit the Queens private beach and have fun watching the traditional Victorian entertainment.

    “It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot” Were the words of Queen Victoria after her first visit to Osborne on the Isle of Wight.

    The house is open from 10am all year round closing an hour earlier than usual in the Winter months and they host many events here.

    You can get a family or a single ticket and prices start at £15 for an adult with a car of 4 being £57. It is good value as it will entertain the whole family for the day.
