Buckingham Palace State Rooms and Royal Mews
Visit Queen Elizabeth II’s official London residence and discover two fascinating parts of Buckingham Palace. Enjoy a visit to the Royal Mews before entering the State Rooms and exploring inside Buckingham Palace.
Your visit to Buckingham Palace begins with a look at the beautiful State vehicles in the Royal Mews. These recognisable vehicles are used for coronations, State visits, royal weddings, the State Opening of Parliament and official engagements. See the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every coronation from George IV onwards! It was also the vehicle of choice for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002.
The Diamond Jubilee State Coach is the newest highlight to the Royal Mews. This stunning vehicle was built to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and combines traditional craftsmanship with modern technology. During your visit to the Royal Mews, you may also see some working royal horses. After visiting the Royal Mews, please make your way to the State Rooms in time for your entry slot.
