The Main Event

You and a friend can go on a right royal day out and immerse yourselves in the pomp and splendour that makes the UK such a prestigious place to be, which is ideal for followers of the royals and of horses.

If you’re a lover of horses and of the Royal family, then this experience is perfect for you as you get to visit one of the most famous stables in the world.

The Royal Mews is home to the Royal collection of coaches and carriages as well as the horses that are famed for performing so admirably on past royal occasions.

The stables are still in charge of making all arrangements for the King and other Royal Family members to go by road. Since George III moved his carriage collection closer to his new residence at Buckingham Palace in 1760, The Royal Mews has served as the location for the sovereign's road transportation.

See the magnificent Diamond Jubilee State Coach and the Australian State Coach, which was donated to Queen Elizabeth II as a gift by the Australian people and even has central heating, plus the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every event, is probably the most stunning of all.
