Unexpected Osborne takes you through Osborne’s less-known histories, from the early days of Osborne as the home of the Blachford family in the 18th century to when the last patient left the Edward VII Convalescent Home for Officers in 2000.

Along the way you will be taken through stories of the Royal Naval College and its role in the First World War and of Prince Bertie’s (later known as Edward VII) specially built smoking room. The tour will also highlight key features such as the ice house that were crucial to life on a Victorian estate.

This event has been graded as moderate access due to the length of the tour and limited resting spaces.
