"Fantastic unique experience. Took my daughter and some friends for her birthday - lovely to have a unique experience… The carriage was in great condition, the crew were so wonderful with the girls, very chatty, warm and knowledgeable and took time to take some good photos for us… A day out to be remembered……:
