Osborne House

Recommended
This enormous Italianate villa with six-storey campanile and terraced gardens, completed in 1851, was the work of Thomas Cubitt and Prince Albert. Queen Victoria liked to spend her vacations here in the company of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Nowadays visitors can take carriage rides round the grounds as far as the Swiss Cottage where the royal children learned to cook. A perfect insight into the daily life of the royal family.
