Explore the state rooms, the intimate rooms of the Royal Family, and the walled garden with its exotic plants. Queen Victoria made this place her family home with Prince Albert and their nine children, and once wrote that it is 'impossible to imagine a prettier spot'. This palatial house reflects the Royal couple's passions, tastes and styles with ornate furnishings, artefacts from the Royal Collection and gifts from across the British Empire.

The beautiful grounds complement the Italianate palace and are filled with breathtaking views that lead down to Queen Victoria's Beach where she regularly bathed and taught her children to swim.
