Step onto a Sark carriage and journey back through time to an age when we did have time to stand and stare. Allow the gentle plod of the horses to carry you round this beautiful island at a pace more in time with our natural ability to take in the things that matter. Slow your whole pace of life and...

Unsure if all the carriages are under the control sark carriages. On reaching the top of the island I was greeted by a row of horse and carriages all turned out beautifully. I thought it would be nice to take one to our hotel. I approached the first carriage in the row and asked for an extended ride the long... More

On arrival you have the take a steep road of about half a mile unto the village. There is a path to the left which climbs up through the woods. Once... More

Ina and her horse, George, are both colourful characters providing a lovely, relaxing and fascinating way to see most of the island. We had the carriage to ourselves, and Ina not only provided lots of history, anecdotes and info, she was fun, friendly and gave us plenty of time to stop and see the sights. Well worth it, then we...

This was my third visit to Sark. The carriage ride took me to parts of the island I had not seen before. The weather was glorious. The driver gave a good commentary and could answer questions he was asked. We had 2 stops to allow us to explore the island a little more. Thoroughly recommended.

A lovely way to see various sights and points of interest. Our guide Danny was a fountain of knowledge and had a great sense of humour. I would say that a carriage ride whilst visiting Sark is a fantastic thing to do.
