Groups & Events
Windsor Carriages is the UK's oldest licensed hackney carriage operation dating back to before 1849. Hiring us for your event or group visit to Windsor provides a one of a kind experience to your guests.
Guides accompany each carriage providing the history of this small but remarkable business and that of Windsor town, Windsor Castle and the estate.
With over 40 years experience, just tell us the number of guests, your timings and we will propose how we can fit into your day. We enjoy working with other group activity organisers within the town and can also provide an online system for your guests to reserve their carriage time taking the headache out of organising. Most popular for groups is to split into smaller groups, and then rotate each group between, for example, walking tours, visiting The Castle and a carriage ride.
Feedback from a recent event in May 2022
"From the moment we contacted Windsor Carriages about an event group booking, Rebecca was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her and the team's pride in offering carriage rides in Windsor Great Park shines through and Rebecca's knowledge and advice on the best experience to offer our 30 guests was spot on, ensuring that every one of them felt like they were receiving a truly bespoke service. The horses and the carriage are beautiful and the setting is second to none. All in all, a faultless service and one-of-a-kind experience that our guests will no doubt talk about for years to come."
