Enjoy Richmond Park from the back of a four-person horse drawn Landau carriage. This 90 minute experience begins at Holly Lodge, Richmond Park, where you'll be treated to a unique behind-the-scenes visit of the working stables. You will then take your place in the carriage embarking on a 60 minute magical ride through the Park.
