A VISIT TO THE ROYAL MEWS

Tuesday 9 April 2019 at 10:45 am

The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace is home to historic royal carriages and one of the finest working stables in the country. In addition it is responsible for all the road travel arrangements for The Queen and members of the Royal Family.


We have arranged a visit on Tuesday 9 April starting at 10:45 am. There will be a guided tour lasting about 45 minutes starting at 11:00 am and then time to inspect discover coaches, horses and carriages at one of the finest working stables in existence. The collection includes the Gold State Coach, used at every coronation since that of George IV in 1821, and the Diamond Jubilee State Coach, built to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee and first used at the state opening of parliament in 2014.

There will also be an opportunity to visit the horses. The stables house two types used to pull the carriages – Windsor Greys and Cleveland Bays.

Afterwards lunch has been arranged at bbar, directly opposite the entrance to the Royal Mews. A menu for lunch pre-orders will be sent to those attending.

The cost including the visit and lunch with wine is £65 per person. Places are limited, so please book promptly and certainly no later than Saturday 30 March.
