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.

Feeling hungry during your visit – there’s so much choice!

Dine like a queen in their elegant Terrace Restaurant and Orangery, or enjoy soup and snacks at their cafĂ© in the Petty Officers’ Quarters, next door to the gift shop.

Busy playing and exploring? Then grab a sandwich or home-made cake at the Gazelle House cake shop at Swiss Cottage, or stroll to the sea to savour a mouth-watering ice cream or fresh frothy coffee at the Beach Pavilion Ice-Cream Parlour.
