Buckingham Palace, London, SW1A 1AA
  • Discover the royal collection of historic coaches and carriages at the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace.

    The Royal Mews is an important branch of the Lord Chamberlain's Office and provides road transport for The Queen and members of the Royal Family by both horse-drawn carriage and motor car.

    One of the finest working stables still in existence, the Royal Mews is responsible for the training of the Windsor Greys and Cleveland Bays, The Queen’s horses that pull the royal coaches and carriages.

    State vehicles are housed and maintained at the Royal Mews, including the carriages used for royal and State occasions, such as State Visits, weddings and the State Opening of Parliament. The most dazzling of all coaches housed in the Royal Mews is the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every coronation since that of George IV in 1821. The latest coach to join the collection of royal coaches is The Diamond Jubilee State Coach which was built to commemorate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
