The Royal Mews

The Glass Coach at Royal Mews

10 pics and the best is last.  I thought a Royal Mews would have cats deep in thought but it turns out to be coaches.  The one above is the “Glass Coach” and was used for royal marriages, including our own Queen Elizabeth II.

The Royal Mews can be found at the southern wall of Buckingham Palace (near Victoria Station) beside the Queens Gallery and you can photograph in both.  Nearby are the State Rooms, where photography is not allowed.  There are also some very royal gift shops,

Donkey Barouche at Royal Mews

This is a Donkey Barouche. Although it would probably look prettier with a donkey sitting in it. 🙂Coach Lamp at Royal Mews DSC_1384

I thought I might borrow this for Christmas.  I’m sure they wouldn’t notice. It would make a great tankard full of amber foaming beer for quaffing.

And, here’s my ride.  Cinderella would have been jealous.
