There’s something special about a ride in a carriage pulled by horses, and there are regular winter carriage rides through Bushy Park in Southwest London. The bracing air and smell of the horses aside, you’re also so much higher up than normal in a car or bike, and the views are that bit better.

Over the next few weeks, there will be regular carriage rides, and makes for a pleasant Christmas treat.

Tickets cost £16 (£15+£1), including mulled wine (or equivalent) and nibbles, and rides take place daily except on Christmas Day, between Saturday 18th Dec 2021 and 2nd Jan 2022.

You need to meet in the car park next to the Pheasantry Cafe, just off the main Chestnut Avenue that runs through the centre of the park.

Children under two years can ride on an adults lap for free, and the rides last around 25 minutes.

Tickets can be reserved here.

If arriving by public transport, the nearest railway station is Hampton Court or Teddington, the meeting point for the carriage rides is about halfway between them.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
