  • My favourite place on the Island, never tire of visiting, although a little pricey, it's packed full of interesting rooms & paintings of Victoria and the family, including lots of historical information. The beach is also a fabulous place to visit with a cafĂ©. The extensive grounds are a must and the minivan is very helpful. Make the most of the Christmas tours, they are fascinating.
  • Former royal retreat then later residence, Osborne is worth checking out. Built in 1845, the Italian Renaissance style building was the holiday home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. It is also where she retreated after Prince Albert's death and the place she herself died. Lovely gardens and private beach to explore. The interior of the house showcases what an opulent and indulgent lifestyle it must have been all that time ago.
  • Good to have a nose around. Really big and lovely grounds. The beach is close and get to see the Queens private beach and tea coffee bar with ice cream! !!
  • Whilst visiting isle of Wight for my parents golden Wedding anniversary, we thought a trip to Osbourne house was worth a visit, it did not disappoint. Really enjoyed the whole experience, the house, the gardens, the woods, Swiss cottage and then the beach Real value for money.
  • We visited on Wednesday Sept.21st. We where warned that filming would cause problems which we accepted but did not tour more than the ground floor of the palace. It was crowded and impossible to see any thing, only to move with the crowd. The staff seemed oblivious as to the problems they where causing allowing so many people in and to my mind it was a Health and Safety Hazard with two way traffic. I heard many people commenting on the situation during the day. Perhaps English Heritage could give more information on the web site as to when the quieter film periods are and if the filming carries in over the week ends. We where disappointed with this day as we have visited many times before and will return later in the year.
