Osborne House gives you a unique glimpse into the cherished home and private lives of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their nine children. Wander down to the once private beach, see the charming Swiss Cottage, built for the royal children, and discover the terrace gardens and historic grounds.
Due to the use of Osborne as the location for filming, there will be limited access to certain areas or the house and gardens on occasions between Monday 12th September – Wednesday 5th October 2016. There will be times when rooms within the house will not be open to visitors, other times when the rooms will be being prepared for filming but still accessible. We will endeavour to keep disruption to visits to a minimum. We are delighted to be chosen as a film location, and hope the filming at Osborne will be of added interest to our visitors.
