Visit Osborne House during Isle of Wight holiday

People on Isle of Wight holidays have been encouraged to pay a visit to Osborne House.

The English Heritage building is located in East Cowes and is best known as the family home of Queen Victoria.

According to Victoria Jones of BBC Countryfile Magazine, it is also one of the best heritage picnic spots in the whole of the UK.

As a result, she has suggested that people who want to do a bit of al fresco dining on the Isle of Wight head there for a meal.

"This breathtaking property and grounds are beautifully maintained and make the perfect backdrop to a spring picnic," she commented.

Queen Victoria herself is known to have said of the house that it is "impossible" to imagine a prettier location.

Osborne House boasts some of the finest Victorian extravagance and opulence in the UK, as well as incredible views across the Solent.

If visitors do not want to enjoy a picnic at the house, they can instead choose to dine in the restaurant and cafe.
