Victoria’s Island Trail
“It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot”
At the height of her reign, Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert chose the Isle of Wight as their favourite holiday spot. Creating a palatial home at Osborne, East Cowes, the royal family spent their holidays visiting attractions, towns and beauty spots across the Isle of Wight.
Take the Victoria’s Island Trail
Take the Victoria’s Island Trail this Autumn. The trail has been created specially to celebrate the forthcoming release of major feature film ‘Victoria and Abdul’, in cinemas September 15. The film stars Dame Judi Dench and Ali Fazal and was partially shot on location at Osborne, Isle of Wight. Osborne is the seaside palace that was both a much-loved family home and stately residence.
The Victoria’s Island Trail includes key locations across the Island, including the church Princess Beatrice married in, the Queen’s favourite Isle of Wight viewpoint, and the yacht club created just for her. Follow in the footsteps of a Queen – walk along the same paths, see the same views and enjoy a unique journey around the Isle of Wight.
