Pay a visit to Queen Victoria's favourite holiday home. The house has remained largely unchanged since the country's longest serving monarch died here 110 years ago.
Restoration work has been carried out on the recently re-opened Durbar Room which houses many gifts and treasures presented to Queen Victoria as does the Swiss Cottage which can be visited by minibus. There are beautiful gardens to explore and the walled garden has recently been restored. It's easy to relax and spend a whole day here and the grounds enjoy beautiful views of the Solent and beyond.

Afton Park Gardens, Plant Nursery, Cafe & Shop

Freshwater, Isle of Wight
Tel: 01983 755774     Web:

Located on the Isle of Wight, the gardens at Afton Park incorporate a popular plant nursery, wildflower meadow and apple orchard open to the public 7 days a week in season. The newly designed and planted gardens sit in an area of outstanding natural beauty, beneath the chalk downs close to Freshwater Bay, at the western end of the Isle of Wight. As well as the gardens a wildflower meadow is being developed on this beautiful seven acre site. There are planted borders, a cottage garden (which is also the tea garden for the Apple Tree Cafe), a Summer Garden, a gravel garden and numerous other plantings around the site. This allows our plant nursery customers to see how the plants we sell might be used. The Orchard is another aspect of what we do. We have 150 apple trees, mainly Cox and Bramley, which we tend and harvest and provide the focus for our annual Isle of Wight Apple Days Festival in September.
