Have a Victorian Christmas on an Isle of Wight holiday

Tourists heading on their Isle of Wight holidays later this year can have a Victorian Christmas during their time on the island.

English Heritage is organising the Osborne House event on November 20th and 21st, with the property set to be transformed for the festive period.

"Delight in the magic and illusion of the side-shows, have a go at hoopla and the coconut shy and marvel at the grand house," commented the organisers.

They explained that the ground floor rooms of the residence will be opened up to those on Isle of Wight holidays for the weekend, with tickets available from £5 for families who are members.

Osborne House is one of the most famous destinations on the Isle of Wight, having been built for Queen Victoria.

She wanted a residence in which to spend her Isle of Wight holidays and visitors can follow in her footsteps by taking a walk through the Victorian Walled Garden at the venue.
