    My husband was like a kid in a candy store, looking at all the planes and other conveyances. I especially enjoyed the films about the Southampton Blitz and other topics. We both were impressed with the friendly and VERY knowledgeable volunteers who chatted happily: answering “dumb” questions (from me) and exploring minutiae with my hubby. Walking around inside the Sandringham Beachcomber (passenger supermarine) was a big highlight. Recommend.

    I visited for the VIP Mary Rose experience. It was absolutely amazing to get to walk around the wreck with the Head Conservationist. To get so close and walk behind the Mary Rose, which you can’t do on a general tour was spectacular. David was able to give insights into the raising, conservation and presentation of the Shipwreck. Then came a private viewing of the Reserve collection of artefacts with the Museum Curator Hannah. It was a very personal look at some artefacts not on display to the public. I got to hold a part of the rigging that had not only been on the Mary Rose, but had also been into space! I think Henry VIII would have approved of this. After tea and cake a private tour of the museum with a wonderful volunteer Tony was on the agenda. He really brought things to life. I left with a goody bag, a smile on my face and some amazing memories. I would highly recommend this experience.

    The theme was a Day at the Movies. It was a beautiful day at the castle. I found it to be very well organised and a lot of fun. People dressed up in there 1920’s theme. They looked great. There was a band, dancing girls and Morris dancers. We reviewed the castle which was beautiful. We met the Lord and Lady of the castle, who took part in a movie. The theme of the movie was when Winston Churchill came to visit. The gardens were beautiful. We were there Fromm 11:00 till 5:30. Wonderful, well organised day.

    First and foremost, visiting this land of dreams was a pleasure for me. I had a fabulous time at Queen’s seaside paradise. These beautiful places always get me spellbound whenever I visit them. From the outside, it looks stunning, but from the inside, it is much more beautiful.

    Mr. Michael Hunter, the curator, led me around the place. It was quite large, scattered over a vast area, and included a lovely garden and a beach. Prince Albert was himself the architect and designed it in an Italic style using his brilliant ideas.

    As I went in, there was so much history to take in, from the detailing of the walls to the magnificent ceiling. Osborne House has reflected the Queen and King’s passion and style. The rooms were all set with an enormous collection of paintings and statues. Then, there was a beautiful walk down towards the dining hall through a long passage that was surprisingly too big. It seemed as if India had come all the way to ‘The Durbar Room of the Queen.’ The interesting objects and architecture left me awestruck! If you also want to live by the history of the monarch, then visit Queen Victoria’s Osborne!

    A great experience for young and old to see how everything worked in times gone by. A loverly set up situated all within one roof meaning it’s great for them rainy days. You can easily spend all day exploring and learning about anything from steam power to how we survived during the war. A great on site cafe serves wonderful food to fill you up during your visit. Highly recommend.

    Excellent presentation with knowledgeable guides. As you would expect not possible for anyone with mobility problems. Life as a seaman of Nelson's era comes alive and principles of warfare especially Battle of Trafalgar is fascinating

    Easy parking at Blackwater, WCs available here. Just passing through so we did the Tall Trees walk. Great to see a couple of Giant Sequoias that are still babies by Californian standards - though still huge!

    My daughter and I, she is 7. Spent a few hours there was plenty to keep her interested. And area where you can dress up, you can steer the ship and shove the coal. Even try your hand at morse code. We even made our own game and picked 6 people to be as we walked in and then had a look to see who
    of those people who would have survived

    Stunningly beautiful walk on a crisp sunny morning in September.
    Bring binoculars if you enjoy bird spotting as lots of wading birds in the old salt beds.
    We think we spotted either a Tempest or Hawker Sea Fury plane being put through its paces in the distance over the sea which was an added bonus!

    Fantastic. We are both local but still learnt a thing or two about the area we live thanks to silky/Joanna Lumley style voice Judith , who if ever the ship was going down, she would have the ability to calm any panicked passenger to stay and listen to her. Thanks to two lovely lady volunteers (sorry don't catch their names) they advised that we could visit the steam room, John did so and thought it was brilliant, we both went to the bridge, where we met Volunteer Ray (font of all knowledge) was such a lovely chap who I could talk to forever. Volunteer Dan who turned out to work on a ship with Johns Dad back in the day and bless him he sent over some photos of Johns dad. It was a great day out but i must say mainly due to the Volunteers who were all so interesting, friendly and polite. Oh, and if you are on the ship, you must have one of their bacon rolls, all food and drink was affordable and well-priced even though they have a captured audience, they didn’t take the micky. Will go again next year to on another trip.
