It was our second visit and it was a fantastic day. There is plenty to see in the house and wonderful new displays celebrating the new film coming out. We took advantage of the free bus to Swiss cottage - the site is huge and...More

The children's quiz was really good. I thought the price was quite excessive but still a nice place to come. Punch and Judy was excellent and so were the ice creams on the beach. It is a beautiful house and full of interesting history.

If you have doubts about the cost of visiting Osbourne don't it is so worth it! The house is very interesting but the gardens and beach are worth the entrance fee alone! They are totally stunning. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The trip...More

Lovely day out, most impressed by the huge, beautiful grounds surrounding the house. Lovely walk down to the beach where the royal family would go and interesting Swiss Cottage where the kids would play. Perfect day to relax, wander and soak up nature.

I was lucky to visit here on a lovely summer's day and the grounds and the views are outstanding. The house is the perfect time capsule for Queen Victoria's reign, after her death in 1901 the private rooms were locked by the family and thus...More

Visited end of December on the way back to the ferry. Beautiful, impressive house and grounds, was fine when we arrived, but by the time we walked to the private beach the fog ruined the view. Despite this, really elegant, definitely worth a visit, would...More
