Isle of Wight: Osborne Admission Ticket

1. Isle of Wight: Osborne Admission Ticket

Admire the opulent Royal Apartments and private family bedrooms within the mansion. See the twin desks where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert worked. Explore the magnificently decorated Durbar Room. The furniture and artifacts reveal intricate details about entertainment at Osborne, from state banquets to family meals. Currently, only the lower floor of Osborne House is open for visitors to view. See where the royal children played house and tended their own gardens down at the Swiss Cottage. There's a room dressed as it was on 11th July 1861, when the children prepared afternoon tea for their parents, not long before Prince Albert's tragic death.  Stroll in the pleasure gardens, alongside historic trees, and enjoy the Victorian Walled Garden much as the royal couple did. Take a trip down to the royal family's once jealously guarded private beach, with Victoria's restored bathing machine.

Isle of Wight: Carisbrooke Castle Entry Ticket

2. Isle of Wight: Carisbrooke Castle Entry Ticket

Carisbrooke Castle has stories to intrigue any visitor. This mighty medieval fortress was a prison for a tragic king and home of Queen Victoria's youngest daughter. Founded around 1100, the castle was key to the Isle of Wight's defense for over nine centuries. First, enjoy an overview of the people and events which have shaped the castle's history by watching an introductory film. Then, patrol the battlements and climb the steep steps up the massive castle mound for unrivalled views from the Norman keep. Explore the powerful medieval gatehouse and the ruins of Carey's Mansion. Discover the stronghold's original domestic buildings, adapted by later residents. See the room from which Charles I attempted to escape - but got stuck in the window bars. Enjoy the Edwardian-style Princess Beatrice Garden, with its fountain and plantings in the rich colors of the royal arms. Don't forget to greet the Carisbrooke donkeys on their daily 10-minute stint of treading the water wheel - demonstrating how it was used for centuries to draw up water from the castle well. Finally admire the statue of the war horse Warrior, loaned to English Heritage as part of the commemoration of the centenary of the First World War.

We just arrived at the opening time and there were no queue. The staff was lovely and willing to help or answer any questions. We had plenty of time to explore the inside and I do recommend you to spend time outside as the ground is fantastic, from the rhododendron walk to the beach. There are plenty of space to relax, sit and enjoy. I would have loved more diversity in term of lunch choices, but you do have a, soup and sandwiches available.

The whole experience at osbourne house was amazing. We had such a good day. We were only sad not to get to the S cottage, nor to see the kitchens and nursery in the house .

Osborne House was a beautiful place to visit. The gardens and grounds were lovely and very well-kept, and the house itself was very interesting. A great experience!
