Osborne House

Historic House

Discover the intimate world of Queen Victoria at Osborne House Osborne House was built for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a private holiday home. It was designed by Prince Albert and built by Thomas Cubitt in Italianate style. Many of the rooms have been preserved and unaltered since the death of Queen Victoria, here in 1901. Osborne reflects Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's passions, tastes and style. Ornate furnishings and artefacts from The Royal Collection fill rooms and corridors where Victoria entertained heads of state, inventors, princess and princesses and ruled the vast British Empire. The Durbar Room, added in 1890 when the Queen became Empress of India, now houses an exhibition of Indian gifts. Set among terraced gardens with stunning views over the Solent, Osborne House offers an intimate insight into the lives of the Victorian Monarchy.
