The Royal Mews - Buckingham Palace – Full Details
The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace houses the State vehicles, both horse-drawn carriages and motor cars, used for coronations, State Visits, royal weddings, the State Opening of Parliament and official engagements.
Visitors can see the Gold State Coach which was last used during The Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002 to carry Her Majesty and Prince Philip to the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral.
The Royal Mews – Stables
The Royal Mews is one of the finest working stables in existence. For most of the year you’ll be able to meet the working horses that play an important role in The Queen's official and ceremonial duties.*
The horses are mainly Cleveland Bays, the only British breed of carriage horse, and the Windsor greys, which by tradition always draw The Queen’s carriage.
*The horses are not always on view as they may be on duty, undergoing training or having a well-deserved rest away from London.
