Full description

Step into your horse-drawn carriage just outside Windsor Castle and travel down The Long Walk, an iconic tree-lined avenue created by King Charles II in 1680. Enjoy a scenic ride as you admire views of famous historical landmarks.

Start your journey by meeting your guide and carriage at the allocated meeting point. Hop aboard your horse-drawn carriage and set-off toward Windsor, taking in splendid views en route. From your carriage you will pass sights such as the Frogmore Mausoleum, the final resting place of Queen Victoria and her husband Albert, the Prince Consort. View Windsor's diamond jubilee statue commemorating Daniel and Storm, the two horses who drew the late Queen Elizabeth II's carriages.

Relax and get away from it all as your carriage winds its way through Windsor Great Park. As you explore the 5,000-acre estate, your guide will bring history alive with stories of the royalty who called this Castle home. Before the end of the tour, take a memorable holiday photo with the splendid Castle as the backdrop.
