The Coronation Carriage joins the ranks of Uber’s ever-growing portfolio of travel methods including Uber Boat, National Rail journeys, Eurostar, coaches and car rentals available using Uber Rent, helping riders go anywhere with Uber.

The beautifully ornate carriage has been lovingly created using designs from previous royal carriages, giving riders the chance to ride in the kind of luxury only normally afforded to the highest ranks of the UK monarchy.
