The Royal Mews is a unique part of Britain's heritage. Built in the gardens of Buckingham Palace between 1822 and 1825, it remains home to many of the carriages and cars used to transport the Royal Family to this day. The Mews is also responsible for the training of the famous Windsor Greys and Bays, the horses that pull the royal carriages, and for the care and upkeep of historic harness and liveries. Visitors to the Mews can view carriages including the 1902 State Landau, most recently seen during the wedding of HRH Prince William and Catherine Middleton, the magnificent Gold State Coach, recognized worldwide for its role in The Queen's Coronation and Jubilee celebrations, and the royal fleet of specially adapted limousines, cared for as carefully as the horses.

With over 80 illustrations, this new souvenir provides a fascinating glimpse into the working life of the Royal Mews.
