In honor of King Charles III’s approaching coronation, London Uber is getting ready to roll out a special limited time “Coronation Carriage.”
The introduction of a royal ride for Uber users inLondon may soon be a reality. To commemorate the forthcoming coronation of King Charles III, who previously served as the Prince of Wales, the industry titan is introducing a “Coronation Carriage” that will provide an exclusive ride in style. On May 6, the coronation ceremony will take place in Westminster Abbey.
According toUber representatives, the meticulously crafted coach “closely resembles the carriage the king himself will ride” and will be available for reservations from May 3 through May 5 in the days preceding the Coronation. The coach only makes a few trips around southwest London’s 76-acre Dulwich Park, consequently it won’t be able to get you to Heathrow. There will be four white horses pulling the carriage, and they will all be dressed up for the Coronation.
“We’re always looking for new ways to add a little Uber magic to peoples’ journeys, so we are over the moon to be able to bring the Coronation Carriage to Uber,” Uber UK general manager Andrew Brem said in a statement, reported by Travel + Leisure.
When you get out of this extraordinary Uber, don’t forget to bring all of your belongings back with you to the real world.
In order to offer tourists services with a royal flair, other travel and hospitality businesses in London are also laying out the red carpet. Aston Martin car rental, afternoon tea service, and a “royal” picnic for two in Cadogan Gardens with a personal cello player are all included in a special coronation package being offered by theCarlton Tower Jumeirah in London. King Charles received one of these vehicles on his 21st birthday from Queen Elizabeth II. T+L also notes that the king has had a passion for the cello ever since his days in boarding school.
