Royal Carriages Tour

This exclusive behind-the-scenes tour offered the chance to experience the luxury of royal travel.

Our special tour began with a welcome from one of our expert curators, followed by the opportunity to climb aboard three of the most famous royal saloons in our collection—King Edward's, Queen Mary's and Queen Victoria’s opulent 'palace on wheels'.

The tour included afternoon tea on the Countess of York, where participants enjoyed delicious finger sandwiches, cakes and pastries in the lavishly decorated, Edwardian-style dining car.
