The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace is a unique part of Britain's heritage.  Built between 1822 and 1825 for George IV, it is still a fully functioning stables, and the home of many of the carriages familiar to us all from grand state occasions - the Glass Coach, the Irish State Coach, the 1902 State Landau, and of course the Gold State Coach itself, recognized worldwide for its role in The Queen's Coronation and Silver Jubilee.  The Royal Mews is also responsible for the training of the famous Windsor Greys and Bays, the horses that pull the royal carriages; for the garaging of the royal cars, including the Rolls-Royce used by the Queen; and for the care, cleaning, and upkeep of historic harness and liveries.
