Windsor Carriage Mission
A heritage legacy deeply rooted in history, with a mission to restore historic carriages, educate on driving traditions, and perpetuate this esteemed service. Join us on a journey along The Long Walk to Windsor Castle.
Respect for tradition is at the core of Windsor Carriages. We place great emphasis on heritage and continuity. In keeping with this enduring tradition, passed down through generations, our aim is to preserve age-old customs and knowledge, fostering a shared history and enduring connection. We offer experiences from the bygone Victorian era, providing tranquility, relaxation, and a profound connection within the majestic backdrop of Windsor Castle.
The revival and preservation of historical ways of life and work are the essence of our mission, as we aim to uphold the significance of commercial carriage driving as a cherished trade within the United Kingdom. This commitment extends to supporting the skilled craftsmen and women contributing to this trade, including wheelwrights and harness makers. We maintain and restore these vehicles traditionally to offer an experience reminiscent of the past, dating back over 175 years. While we prioritize authenticity, we've also made enhancements for all-weather protection, a smoother ride, and improved safety with lower, wider steps.
As the United Kingdom's oldest horse-drawn hackney carriage company, Windsor Carriages is resolute in safeguarding our enduring legacy, which traces its roots back to the Victorian era. We take great pride in our unwavering dedication to conducting educational visits for local schools and groups. These special events provide us with the opportunity to not only showcase our treasured collection of artifacts but also unveil the intricate tapestry of history interwoven into the very essence of our operation. These artifacts are currently on display at the Windsor and Eton Museum, conveniently located within the Windsor Guildhall.
At Windsor Carriages, our philanthropic and charitable endeavors are of paramount importance. We wholeheartedly embrace our role as a stalwart pillar of the community, and our dedication to supporting local charities, such as the Windsor Food Bank and The Alexander Devine Children's Hospice, serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment. In our storied history, we proudly stand as the community's fourth oldest attraction, revered alongside Windsor Castle, The Great Park, and the majestic River Thames.
We are unwavering in our commitment to preserving the authenticity of our traditions, ensuring that the legacy of Windsor Carriages remains true to its roots.
Animals are at the heart of our operation, and their pivotal role in our tradition is of paramount importance. We approach all our endeavors with compassion and care, both towards our animal companions and our community.
