Osborne House on the Isle of Wight was a summer retreat built for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert between 1845 and 1851, designed by Albert himself with the architect Thomas Cubitt in the style of an Italian palazzo. Albert’s involvement also extended to the grounds and surrounding land and farms which totalled 1727 acres (294 hectares).
