Discover the Speaker's State Coach

The Speaker’s State Coach is an iconic work of art and an important piece of Parliamentary history. In this story, we follow the coach for over 300 years and take a close look at its design and imagery.  The Coach is now cared for as a heritage object, the earliest surviving English coach in the United Kingdom. It is on display in Westminster Hall until October in celebration of King Charles III’s Coronation.
