Heavy Horse Carriage Rides

Experience the luxury of a private carriage ride pulled by one of our magnificent Wimpole Shire horses.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

The route takes you from the farm up to the mansion and back, with your own personal dedicated driver and groom. Carriage rides last about 45 minutes with a stop for photographs on the mansion drive. The maximum passenger number is four people, with children of all ages more than welcome. The perfect way to see the rural beauty of this estate.

This is a unique opportunity with limited spaces, so pre-booking is essential. £85 covers the private booking of a carriage with driver, groom and space for 4 passengers. Smaller children who are able to sit on an adult's lap for the duration of the ride can join in addition to the 4 passengers. Admission to the Estate applies.
