Queen Victoria's Seaside Pleasures
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert spent many enjoyable hours on the beach at Osborne. Visitors can see the very place the royal children learned to swim and enjoy the same magnificent views across the Solent.
History of the beach
Bathing Machine and Alcove
See the fully restored bathing machine used by Queen Victoria on the beach she so loved. This strange contraption was used to preserve the queen's modesty, as it concealed her from view whilst bathing in the sea.
