  • Getting Here

Take an intimate glimpse into Queen Victoria’s family life as you tour the nursery and private rooms of Victoria and Albert. Marvel at the magnificence of the Royal Apartments including the sumptuous drawing and dining rooms and the richly decorated Indian-inspired Durbar Room.

Admire the stunning view from the terraces across the Solent – said to remind Prince Albert of the bay of Naples - and stroll through Osborne’s extensive grounds. Don’t miss the miniature Swiss Cottage, built to teach the royal children the art of household management!

Explore Queen Victoria's private beach, open to the public for the first time. "We have quite a charming beach to ourselves," Victoria wrote in 1845 and it was here that the Queen regularly bathed and where her children learned to swim. Enjoy traditional seaside entertainment including Punch and Judy shows throughout the summer holidays.
