Osborne House, East Cowes

Glamour, grace, and elegance are the words that spring to mind in relation to Osborne House, a sprawling Victorian mansion set against the backdrop of the Isle of Wight’s lush pastureland. Once a royal retreat, the building was designed in the style of an Italian Renaissance palace by Prince Albert himself. It remains well-known for being the place where Queen Victoria died in 1901. The interior boasts a decor equally as ornate as the exterior, replete with sumptuous galleries and rooms. Osborne House is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, East Cowes Edition.
