One of the only remaining parts of the 18th-century gardens, these gardens were used by Prince Albert as a nursery for his trees and shrubs alongside flowers for the house. You and your guests can sip cocktails amid the floral fragrances of trained Victorian fruit trees, roses and parma violets.
On a summer’s evening you can enjoy champagne and canapés on the beach. To quote Queen Victoria, “it is impossible to imagine a prettier spot”.

When Victoria first saw Osborne, she wrote that ‘it is impossible to imagine a prettier spot’. Its lavish rooms are still full of original art and furniture and the gardens are planted to Albert’s own designs.
