OSBORNE HOUSE

This was the result of Queen Victoria's desire for a home of ones own.. Set in the tranquil Isle of Wight, the house stands high over the Solent where the mighty Royal Navy would pass on the way out from Portsmouth. The great Italiante house was remodelled on themes put forward by Prince Albert, her husband. The Queen died in the house after a long period of mourning and the house contains a large collection of her belongings. It has become the most evocative memorial to Britain's longest serving monarch.
