  • See The King's horses and some of The King's staff at work in the royal stable with this Royal Mews entrance ticket
  • Admire the stunning royal coaches and carriages on display, including the Gold State Coach, built for George III in 1762
  • Have fun dressing up in specially created livery, practicing your saddle-mounting, and climbing aboard your own coach

The Royal Mews is one of the finest working stables anywhere in the world and home to the royal collection of historic coaches and carriages, and the Windsor Greys and Cleveland Bays, the horses that pull the carriages. To this day, the stables are still responsible for all road travel arrangements for His Majesty The King and other members of the Royal Family.

The Royal Mews has been the location of the sovereign’s road transport since 1760 when George III moved his carriage collection closer to his new home at Buckingham Palace – since then it has been updated by several monarchs in keeping with their changing transport needs.

Among the historic coaches and carriages on display are the spectacular Diamond Jubilee State Coach, and the Australian State Coach, which was given to Queen Elizabeth II as a gift from the Australian people, and even includes central heating!
