The Isle of Wight has a big claim to fame when it comes to the Victorian period - we are home to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's holiday home Osborne House at East Cowes!
You can come and visit the house and grounds and gain a fantastic insight into the private lives of this much loved (and feared) monarch.
Much of the Island's architecture is Victorian, with many of our seaside resorts proving popular in the era. The amazing Ryde Pier is of Victorian heritage and is still used today by both trains and cars to reach the ferry terminal a quarter of a mile into the Solent.
Come and see where Queen Victoria and her family spent their holidays in this beautifully maintained house. See the famous Swiss Cottage playhouse in the gardens and sit on Victoria's private beach.More Details
