Queen Victoria's Isle of Wight Home
Thursday 25th July 2019
£36.50 English Heritage
Travelling via ferry from Portsmouth we visit the place about which Queen Victoria said “It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot” – Osborne House. Located on the northern shore of the Isle of Wight, the house reflects the passions, tastes and style of Victoria and Albert. Ornate furnishings and artefacts from The Royal Collection fill rooms and corridors where Victoria entertained heads of state, inventors, princes and princesses and ruled the vast British Empire. Once you have explored the State and Family rooms take a stroll through the magnificent grounds and gardens with views over The Solent.
