Horse-drawn carriage tours through Windsor Great Park all year round on...

Horse-drawn carriage tours through Windsor Great Park all year round on scheduled dates. Tours start from outside the award winning Visitor Centre at The Savill Garden TW20 0XD, 10 mins by car from Windsor Castle. Plenty of parking & Leiths Restaurant overlooks the garden, providing Beverages, Lunch or Vintage Afternoon Tea.

Enjoy exploring this beautiful Royal Park at any time of year, from the comfort of 4/6 seat carriage previously used by Late Lt Col Sir John Miller, Her Majesty the Queens Equerry for 26 years. Your Carriage Driver/Guide provides information about the area as you travel at a relaxing pace on private roads and woodland paths,away from traffic, through a National Collection of Japanese Maples (a riot of colour in Autumn) to a restored 18th Century Lake, hidden away in the heart of The Great Park with a stunning display of waterlilies in Summer and tranquil reflections in Winter. Or go further to The Valley Gardens for a view of Virginia Water or the Punch Bowl in Spring with a spectacular burst of Spring colour (10,000 azaleas). We have cosy lap rugs and umbrellas on board in case they are needed and specialise in Romantic Proposal Rides for Romantic couples, Family Rides and tours for small groups.

You can book ahead, and pay on the day, we will confirm your booking the day before and contact you if the weather prevents us operating, as we know you will enjoy the Great Park more on a fine day!

My friend and I experienced a carriage ride this afternoon, with our three young children. Henry, the beautiful shire horse and the open carriage itself, looked resplendent, still with their Christmas decorations on. The host and carriage driver, Jo, was friendly and very knowledgeable on the history and interesting facts about the Great Park as we enjoyed our ride. Our... More

In December 2015 I surprised my girl-friend with a romantic carriage tour through Windsor Great Park. In the middle of the carriage ride we stopped at a lake where I proposed to my girl-friend successfully. :-) Jo and her team arranged the tour perfectly and I definitely would recommend it! They were very pleasant and knowledgeable. We hope to return... More

On a recent overcast October day, my husband and I, along with two good friends, arrived at Savill Garden for a pre-booked carriage ride. Jo, the lady in charge, was already sitting in a regal looking carriage and holding the reins behind a large horse dressed in a purple velvet cap that covered his ears. She gave a warm welcome...

This was an experience to savour, and one we will do again and again. Jo and Angela, our drivers, were excellent informative hosts, and they made our carriage ride very special indeed. Henry performed impeccably, happily accepting the walkers and stoically ignoring the dogs we came across during our hour-long jaunt. To do this ride at this time of year,... More

Great staff- very quick to respond when arranging our last minute booking. Very knowledgable of the park and local facts. Henry the horse was a perfect gentleman. We loved our trip and wish we could have stayed longer to soak up the sun and history of the park but we had a train to catch. Would recommend to anyone. Lovely... More
