Visit to Osborne House and Whippingham Church

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s home was built in 1851. Prince Albert designed the garden terraces, the lower of which was opened to the public for the first time on 26 August. The bedroom where Queen Victoria died is on show.

We also visited nearby Whippingham Church, which has many links with the Mountbatten family.

We left Church Place, Romsey, at 9am to catch a car ferry leaving Southampton at 10am and arrived at Osborne at 11.30. Returning on the 4.30 pm ferry, we arrived back in Romsey by about 6.15pm. It was a very enjoyable day out.
