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.
