Visited here with my father-91-and daughter-33.Excellent value for money, we all learnt more about our Royal family. Guides were very informative and obviously passionate about this beautiful house. A must indeed.

Great place. History at every corner even my young son loved it and followed the children's guide. Queen Victoria private beach was great

Amazing place, full of history, just mesmerising. Loved the beach and the Queen's bathing machine. Sat in the deckchairs with my dogs while my kids played on the beach. Well worth it.

History, scenery and the seaside - what more could you want? Osborne House is not just a Victorian time capsule, although that in itself is very interesting. The house is set in lovely countryside, with formal gardens and parkland sweeping down to the beach with...More

You can tour the house and grounds as well as the beach. Although you could do the house in about an hour, allow yourself more time and see the other attractions located here, including the Swiss house and the beach. There are some long walks...More

A beautiful house in a lovely setting. Absolutely choc a bloc with art. The house is interesting and the gardens are spectacular. Great ice cream on the beach.

Wow--such a beautiful home and gorgeous grounds! The layout and decor of the home felt very comfortable. It was very grand of course, but not so much that one would have felt like they were living in a museum. Very much worth the ferry ride....More

Set aside half a day at least for this experience. The house is wonderful but in addition, the parkland, beach, Swiss Chalet, Ice House are all extra glimpses into a bygone age. Not to be missed and superb for young and old alike

What a shame that on days that are pouring down with rain, there is no difference in the entrance price for the gardens only. This was all we heard from the people who had to venture round with umbrellas trying to avoid the puddles which...More

There is disabled access and I saw wheelchair users when we visited last week but you can always contact English Heritage or even Osborne House to clarify.

Yes indeed. Rain is unlikely in summer months, shanklin is 8 miles away and the sunniest place in U.K. Saying that, we walked down to the beach and had an ice cream or two while it rained for 20 mins. Spent the whole day... More
