    Osborne House
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Your driver and guide will personally meet you at your accommodation in London and then make the journey down to the South Coast of England. (Approx 2 hours) You will board the passenger Ferry and cross the Solent, arriving in East Cowes on the Isle of Wight. A five minute drive and you will be at the gates of Osborne House. "It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot" said Queen Victoria of Osborne House. This was the Queens favourite holiday home, and the views across the grounds reminded Prince Albert of the Bay of Naples. After Albert's death Queen Victoria spent much of her life on the Isle Of Wight. Osborne reflects Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's passions, tastes and style. Ornate furnishings and artifacts 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 Gardens and grounds are complete with play houses for the Royal Children and a private bathing beach. Peek into the private world of Victoria and Albert and their nine children, in the nursery and family rooms at Osborne. Visit the queen's sitting room and see the balcony where Victoria and Albert used to listen to nightingales on a summer's evening. Prince Albert's private suite was kept as it was in his lifetime, by Queen Victoria, and many of the things he used at Osborne still lie where he left them. See the queen's personal bath tub in the dressing room,  and, next door, the bedroom where she died, on 22 January 1901. As you walk through the grand corridors, image the famous men and women who paced the same corridors in years gone by. You will have plenty of time to visit the onsite Cafe's and Gift Shops.  If time permits, we can take a drive through the countryside on the Isle Of Wight, giving you a taste of what this beautiful Island has to offer. This is a private and bespoke tour with no strict schedules. We go at your pace. Returning to London early evening. This tour also includes the option of an overnight stay if you want to have a little more time on the Island. (Accommodation booked at your expense) returning to London the following evening. See Tour Options.

Day trip from London to Osborne House on the Isle of Wight
Apr 2019 • Couples
Richard is a fantastic guide. He was very informative, full of historical knowledge, cheerful, obviously enjoys his role and takes his time to make the trip a very enjoyable experience for his clients. He picked us up from our London hotel on time and the trip timetable was perfectly adhered to. We had plenty of time to fully appreciate the stories behind Osborne House and the beautiful gardens. It was a wonderful experience to see the planning that went into the construction of the buildings and gardens. You could see the love between Victoria and Albert woven into the fabric of everything we saw. Their initials entwined on everything, the happy family photos and the carefully selected sculptures and paintings, gifts to each other. Great day, thank you Richard!

Best experience of our entire stay!
My boyfriend and I spent 8 days in England and did a number of tours between London, the Cotswolds, Bath, and Oxford. As a Victorian history buff, I wanted Osborne House to be a can’t-miss part of our trip. The travel agent booked this tour with Richard and we weren’t sure what to expect.

It turns out he was fantastic, personable, incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. He was only as involved as we wanted him to be, and the interaction was never awkward or intrusive. My boyfriend took the opportunity (and the incredible setting) to propose to me while on this tour and Richard was happy to help him set me up and steal a pic of the moment. Apparently we were the first to have ever gotten engaged during one of his tours and will no doubt not be the last. When we return to the UK, Richard will absolutely be our first choice for anything and everything we want to see that’s in his offerings. We can’t recommend him highly enough!

Huge congratulations to you both on your engagement. It was a first for me to have a proposal on a tour. I know the setting was very special for you! I hope I get to welcome you back to the UK again in the near future. Best wishes for all of your Wedding plans.

Quite expensive but well worth the visit.
Going around the HMS Victory was quite an eyeopener. Fascinating to see how people lived on board all that time ago
