Since the 19th century, the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace has been home to the royal collection of coaches and carriages. It has played an important role in many memorable State and ceremonial occasions, such as Her Majesty's Coronation, royal weddings, and Trooping the Colour. Today the Royal Mews provides a unique opportunity for visitors to see the work of the Royal Household department that provides road transport for The Queen and members of the Royal Family by both horse-drawn carriage and car. The Mews is also home to Windsor Greys and Cleveland Bays, the horses that pull the royal carriages, each named personally by Her Majesty. Undoubtedly the most dazzling vehicle at the Royal Mews is the Gold State Coach, which was built for George III in 1762. As its name suggests, the surface of the coach is covered almost entirely in real gold leaf. It weighs almost four tonnes, requires eight horses to pull it, and has carried every monarch to their coronation since 1821. The State Rooms at the heart of Buckingham Palace provide the setting for ceremonial occasions and official entertaining, where The Queen welcomes guests from all walks of life. The rooms are furnished with many of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Vermeer and Canaletto, sculpture by Canova, exquisite Sèvres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world. Highlights include the Throne Room, Ballroom, White Drawing Room, Picture Gallery and others.
