Shire horse carriage rides on the East Front...accordian title

Meet Henry VIII's Great Horses and enjoy a free tram ride through 500 years of history.

The Shire horses at Hampton Court are part of the last herd of working Shire horses in London. They live in Home Park, where they also help maintain the wildflower meadows.

Once ubiquitous across London, today Shire horses are rarer than pandas, and Hampton Court Palace offers a unique opportunity to meet Henry VIII's gentle giants.

Our trams are fully accessible and can accommodate wheelchairs.

Please note: shire horse rides are weather dependent and will not run in adverse weather conditions.
