Horse and carriage rides are available in the grounds which also house hot houses and a Victorian walled garden. Restaurant and café. - Carol

A bustling town at the best of times it goes collectively mad during Cowes Week in August when the cream of British Yahcting Society drops by. Just outside the town stands Osborne House - beloved home of Queen Victoria and the palce of her death in 1801 - Nige
