Carriage Ride by Maymont Mansion

Tram & Rides

Tour the estate and gardens in style.

There are numerous reasons for choosing a Maymont ride - romance, history, simple fun or just simple convenience. Depending upon your mood, your choices include a 40-passenger open-air tram, a horse-drawn wagonette that seats six, an intimate horse-drawn surrey or a raucous hayride. Visit when public rides are scheduled or reserve your own private tour!
