Santa's Horse Carriage Rides

South Causey Inn, County Durham

An experience for all the family...

Come with us on a magical winter journey from the picturesque South Causey Inn towards the Causey Arch for a two-mile carriage ride with the wonderful horses from Northeast Carriages.

A unique Christmas experience that will instill the magic of Christmas for all your family! You will be greeted by two majestic horses in a festive hooded carriage with Santa Claus himself as your driver. Blankets and hot water bottles will be ready in the carriage for your lap, to keep you warm and toasty.

Mulled Wine or Hot chocolate and Festive Cupcakes will be given to you before you set off, which you can enjoy in the carriage whilst you watch the world go by!
