Osborne House in Isle of Wight

No trip to the island would be complete without a visit to this royal seaside palace. Take an intimate glimpse into Queen Victoria’s family life as you tour the palatial holiday home. Marvel at the magnificence of the Royal Apartments, their bathing beach and children’s play-cottage for an intimate glimpse of royal family life. Then stroll through the garden terraces where the stunning views across the Solent reminded Prince Albert of the Bay of Naples. Queen Victoria even said it ‘is impossible to imagine a prettier spot’ after her first visit to Osborne house so come and see for yourself the beauty of the palace.

Why visit Osborne house?

Osborne reflects Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's passions, tastes and style. Feel like a prince or a princess as you admire the artefacts and furnishings that fill each room and learn all about their life.

The spectacular palace is also available to hire. The inspirational and intimate venue will welcome and wow your guests. Hold your event in rooms bursting with colour and regal splendour, or down in the wood-fringed private beach. A marquee over-looking the sea is a memorable setting in which to hold your reception and celebrations, emanating the extravagant events hosted by the Queen herself.
