Carriage & Wagon Rides

See Our City, Differently

Enjoy a leisurely ride through the Historic Area by horse-drawn carriage. Surround yourself with the sights and sounds of our unique city, far removed from the bustle of modern-day streets. Celebrate an anniversary in 18th-century style or enjoy a ride with your family on this signature Colonial Williamsburg experience.

A Carriage For All Occasions

We have a variety of carriages. You can book the Romantic Wythe Carriage for two, the Red Carriage for four, or the Stage Wagon for nine passengers.

How & Where To Buy

Carriage and wagon rides operate daily, weather permitting. To facilitate social distancing, carriage rides are sold by the whole carriage and may be purchased at the Lumber House Ticket Office (on Duke of Gloucester Street across from Palace Green), or the William Pitt Store (on the corner of Duke of Gloucester Street and Botetourt Street) on the day of use. These rides are a popular experience and often sell out quickly, so we recommend making your reservation as early in the day as possible. Guests with a current admission ticket or annual pass receive a $15 discount on carriage rides.* Children must be accompanied by an adult. 

All guests are required to wear face masks when indoors and are encouraged to wear them on carriage rides. The wearing of face coverings outdoors is optional but recommended.
