The Landau

The landau carriage is originally named after a German town where the carriage was first made. They were imported to Britain in around 1757. In Victorian days, a landau was something of a status symbol, the mark of a successful man. In 1890 the carriage would cost around £220.

Our carriage has been completely renovated. It has been reupholstered and repainted with approximately eight coats of paint to give its immaculate finish. The wheels are lined in gold, topping the rich dark green colour of the carriage. Gold ribbons hang from the shining brass door handles and lamps. Decorations can be customised for your own event.The hood of the landau can be conveniently raised in response to unpredictable weather conditions.
