The Royal Mews has a permanent display of State vehicles. These include the magnificent Gold State Coach used for Coronations and those carriages used for Royal and State occasions, State Visits, weddings, and the State Opening of Parliament. A State motor vehicle is also usually on display.
For most of the year the stables are home to the working horses that play an important role in The Queen's official and ceremonial duties. They are mainly Cleveland Bays, the only British breed of carriage horse, and the Windsor greys, which by tradition always draw the carriage in which The Queen is traveling. As they may be on duty, undergoing training or having a well-deserved rest away from London, the horses are not always on view.
