Our short film reveals the spectacular setting of this royal seaside palace where Britain's longest reigning monarch, Queen Victoria, lived with her beloved Prince Albert and their nine children. Although famous for the magnificent Royal Apartments with their sumptuous drawing and dining rooms and the richly decorated Indian-inspired Durbar Room within the house, Osborne's extensive gardens and grounds include terraces, walled-garden a private beach - complete with the Queen's bathing machine, and Swiss Cottage where the royal children played. English Heritage now cares for Osborne today, and as we filmed at the start and at the end of a summer day, all that's missing from the video is you, your family and friends!
