Osborne House is about 20 minutes walk from East Cowes Marina. As well as the gardens, Swiss Cottage, private beach and, of course, the house, English Heritage hosts events and activities in holiday weeks.

Meet some of nature's most majestic creatures as you discover the art of training, exercising and hunting with birds in the Victorian era. Hear stories of how they were employed, learn about popular birds of prey in Victorian times, and enjoy expert demonstrations of our falconers' skills and techniques.

With falconry displays throughout the day and the entire estate of Osborne to explore, it's the perfect way to enjoy a memorable day out this autumn.
