About

Horse Drawn Carriage Tours of Windsor Great Park Since 1849: A Great Park Experience

All tours enjoy views of Windsor Castle and The Long Walk

Our tours are much more than a carriage ride. We bring a unique perspective to the Great Park by sharing the knowledge, stories and events passed down through the generations of coachmen.

It’s what makes our tours 'A Great Park Experience'.

Enjoy the spectacular approach to Windsor Castle on The Long Walk, featured all around the world in 2018 at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. 

Tours throughout Windsor Great Park can be arranged, including through the Windsor Great Park Deer enclosure with its herd of roaming deer descended from breeding stock from Her Majesty’s Balmoral estate.

Two start locations: Windsor Castle tours start from Windsor Castle post code SL4 1LB. Bishopsgate tours start from post code TW20 0XU.

All tours seat up to 4 adults and 2 children under 12.

Different carriages available by arrangement.

Advance booking recommended – see website to book

Discounts for RBWM residents will take place throughout the year. Sign up via email to receive updates on selected dates at www.windsorcarriages.co.uk
