Retrospective - Osborne House

Retrospectives - Looking back at old memories to bring the past into the future.

A visit to Osborne House, the home of Queen Victoria on the Isle of Wight.  The pictures are only of the outside as no photos were allowed inside.














 
It was a very rainy day when I visited and it was also very crowded.  It would be nice to go back on a drier and less busy day!

  2. Dear Amy - I really enjoyed seeing your take on Osborne House as I have a post sitting in 'drafts' ready to publish at some stage. Who knows we may be have been visiting at around the same time, it is somewhere that I had wanted to see for a long time - I liked the things that you chose to photograph.

  6. Osborne House looks like a very elegant and palatial home, Amy, and I am sure Queen Victoria loved being there. I enjoyed your photos very much, as we don't hear about it much these days, and I am sure it is really interesting on the inside too. Great post, thank you! xx

  10. It's a beautiful place, even in the rain! Too bad they didn't let you take pictures inside. A lot of place don't.

  11. Another lovely place. What's with this no photography inside rule? So many places don't allow it. It's a shame really. We/I could share so much more on our blogs.

  23. I've never visited - I think that whenever we have gone over to the Isle of Wight, it has been closed! One day - hopefully.

  24. I enjoyed seeing your pictures of Osborne House it reminded me of our visit when the children were small. My Mum stayed in the Nursing home which is in part of the building on a couple of occasions. Sarah x

  25. Osborne House is beautiful, from its perfectly manicured gardens to its architectural appeal. My friend, Maria, who lives in West Sussex, recently visited the Isle of Wight, and was mesmerized!

    Have a wonderful week!
