The Royal Mews is deemed as one of the finest working stables anywhere in the world. It is also home to the royal collection of historic coaches and horse-drawn carriages, as well as the Cleveland Bays and Windsor Greys, the horses that draw the carriages. To this day, the stables are responsible for providing transportation services by road to His Majesty The King and other members of the Royal Family.
Since George III moved his carriage collection closer to Buckingham Palace in 1760, the Royal Mews has played a central role in the sovereign's road transport. It has been updated by monarchs through the ages in keeping with their changing transport needs. Highlights among the historic coaches and carriages on display include the spectacular Diamond Jubilee State Coach, and the centrally-heated Australian State Coach, given as a gift to Queen Elizabeth II from the Australian people.
The most striking of all is the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every coronation since 1821 and played a huge role in the Platinum Jubilee held in June 2022. Visitors to the Royal Mews can now interact and learn about its history, which includes the chance to step into a model of Queen Victoria's Semi-State Landau, dress up as a footman in a specially created livery, or even learn how to harness a horse!
The Royal Mews offers a complimentary multimedia guide for every visitor, perfect for learning the history of the Mews and its connection to the British monarchy. While the multimedia guide is 45 minutes long, visitors can stay back at the Royal Mews for longer to explore the working stable further at their own pace.
Note: The Royal Mews will be open from 19 May to 2 Oct 2022.
