Osborne House

"It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot", Queen Victoria once said about Osborne House. A royal palatial holiday home on the Isle of Wight, you can visit Victoria and Albert's private apartments, their bathing beach, and children's play-cottage for an exclusive glimpse of royal family life. Ornate furnishings and artefacts from the Royal Collection fill rooms and corridors where Victoria entertained princes, princesses, heads of state, inventors and ruled the British Empire.

Ventnor Botanical Garden

Founded in 1970 by Sir Harold Hillier, Ventnor Botanical Garden comprises worldwide temperate and sub-tropical trees organised by region. The remarkable 'Undercliff' where the gardens lie protects them from northern winds by chalk downs. In the spring Ventnor comes alive with blooms, colour and lizards boasting over 30,000 rare and sub-tropical plants and trees spread across 22 acres. 

The I.O.W Steam Railway

This heritage railway passes through 5.5 miles of countryside from Smallbrook Junction to Wooton Station, passing through the small village of Havenstreet. Stepping back in time on a steam train, settle back in Victorian and Edwardian carriages with gleaming brass handles and vintage droplight windows. Even the staff wear traditional uniforms! Passing through the ancient woodland and small villages of the Isle of Wight, savour the idyllic view of the unspoilt countryside.
