Red House Stables

UK»England»Derbyshire»Red House Stables

Established in 1946 by Mr. William Smith and continued by his daughter Red House Stables Working Carriage Museum has one of the finest collections of original horse drawn vehicles and equipment in Britain. The present collection of carriages includes one of the very few surviving Hansom Cabs, a Stage Coach, Royal Mail Coach and many other private and commercial vehicles. It is a working museum and the owner, Caroline Dale-Leech, ensures that the vehicles are regularly out on the road being used, not locked away behind closed doors. Visitors are welcome to browse around at their leisure and take a fascinating look behind the scenes and meet the horses and ponies. Carriage rides by Coach and Team of Four Horses or Carriage and Pair of Horses can be arranged from half hour local trips to a three and a half hour tour to Chatsworth House and return.
