Londonderry State Coach

The State Coach is usually on display at the National Trust's Mount Stewart estate, County Down, former seat of the Marquesses of Londonderry.

A new coach-house was made for the coach, which used to be based at the family's grand London residence, Londonderry House, Park Lane.

The coach  (or chariot) is exquisite in its detail and craftsmanship.

The Londonderry coat-of-arms, crests and coronets adorn it.

7th Marquess & Marchioness

The walls of the coach-house tell its story: it only seems to have been used on state occasions.

The coach is on loan from the present Marquess.
