We visited on a glorious sunny day & the house just glowed in the light. You can see most of the rooms, except the children's bedrooms. This is due to the house previously being used as a convalescent home, and all original features were (sadly) removed. The gardens are amazing, and, if you are energetic, you can walk to the private beach and Swiss Cottage. There is a minibus service if it's too far for you. A wonderful day out for all the family.

This is an all day thing I would say we didn't get to see everything. But what we did see it was an amazing place to visit and it's full of some really cool history. We have afternoon tea at the little coffee shop that just next to the back garden. Not to badly priced but could of done with a few more staff on. Would definitely come again as its just a very interesting place to visit.

Really enjoyed our first visit to Osborne house ended up spending about 5 hours there. We felt there was plenty to see and some nice easy walks to the beach and Swiss House. We particularly liked the fact that all the tea rooms/ restaurants were open providing a variety of food to suit everyone. Definitely worth the entrance fee.

What a beautiful place. One can understand a little why Queen Victoria often wanted to go there and eventually passed away. The spectacular mansion is surrounded by a beautiful garden and extensive park that invites you to take a walk. But you should definitely go inside and follow the circular route through the rooms. It is very interesting and a treasure trove for art lovers and people who like antiques. In addition, everything is very well maintained and there is a lot of friendly staff who are happy to answer questions.

One of our favourite places to visit. We took the dog and enjoyed a walk in the grounds. The gardens and views are beautiful. Kids love the Swiss cottage play area and there is a big play area just outside the entrance. Refreshments are a bit expensive but we took a picnic.
