UK»England»Isle of Wight»Osborne House

Welcome to Queen Victoria's palace by the sea. After first visiting Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, England's longest reigning monarch wrote: It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot Look out for Victorian opulence, extravagant interiors, and jaw dropping Indian decor in the Durbar Room. However, Osborne was also built as a family home and as you walk through the Queen's bedroom, the nursery rooms and even royal bathrooms, you get an intimate glimpse into royal family life. Children will love the Swiss Cottage with its child size furniture and also enjoy letting off steam in the play area.There are acres of grounds and gardens to relax in, horse and carriage rides to take and a delightful restaurant and cafe. It is not surprising that Osborne House, come rain or shine, is one of the Isle of Wight's top attractions for the whole family and provides a great day out.
