Osborne House

This is the house where Queen Victoria lived for much of her life following the death of Prince Albert.

We visited the house during our stay on the Isle of Wight and although historic houses don’t often do it for me, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

Although they don’t do specific guided tours, they have people stationed in each room of the house who are more than happy to talk to visitors about the room and background information. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and more than happy to let us, as blind people, touch many of the exhibits.

I’d thoroughly recommend a visit to osborne House if you find yourself on the Isle of Wight.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
