Greetings, esteemed travellers and last-minute planners! I'm your guide from Last Minute Travel, the UK's leading connoisseur of refined and delightful transport hire services. Today, I'm thrilled to take you on a journey through the quaint and enchanting world of horse and carriage hire. Whether you're seeking to add a touch of regality to your event or simply wish to indulge in the bygone era's charm, this ultimate guide is your perfect companion.

Why Horse and Carriage?

There's something undeniably magical about the gentle clip-clop of hooves against cobblestone streets, isn't there? A horse-drawn carriage not only exudes elegance but also offers a serene escape from the frenetic pace of modern life. At Last Minute Travel, we understand the allure of these timeless beauties and provide an array of options to suit your fancy.

Our Majestic Fleet

We take pride in our fleet of horse-drawn carriages, each meticulously maintained and ready to elevate your special occasion. From the grandeur of the Victorian-style Landau carriages, perfect for weddings, to the rustic charm of a traditional wagonette for countryside tours, our selection is unmatched.

Wedding Carriages

Imagine arriving at your wedding venue in a splendid carriage, drawn by a pair of magnificent horses, with all eyes on you. It's not just transport; it's an experience that becomes an integral part of your cherished memories.

Event Carriages

Be it a prom night, a corporate gala, or a community festival, our carriages add a dash of sophistication that is bound to leave an impression. With a variety of styles and sizes, we cater to events both large and small.

Booking Tips

While the notion of 'last minute' is in our name, securing your horse and carriage hire in advance is always prudent. However, we're adept at accommodating even the most spontaneous requests with grace and efficiency.

Peak Seasons

Certain times of the year, such as summer weekends and festive periods, can see a surge in demand for our carriages. Planning ahead during these peak seasons ensures you won't miss out on this unique experience.

Weather Preparations

The UK's weather can be unpredictable, but fear not. Many of our carriages come with convertible roofs and side panels to protect against the elements, ensuring comfort without compromising the grandeur.

Unmatched Service

Our professional drivers, or should I say coachmen, are not only skilled in handling the horses but are also trained to provide you with the highest standard of service. Dressed in traditional attire, they complete the authentic experience you seek.

Safety Assurance

Safety is paramount at Last Minute Travel. Our horses are well-trained, and our carriages are regularly inspected to guarantee a safe and smooth ride every time.
