Though Pope Benedict XVI will often be travelling by motorcade during his State Visit to Britain, he is only expected to make a few journeys in the "Popemobile".
In Edinburgh, the distinctive vehicle will take the Pope from Holyrood Palace along Abbeyhill, Regent Road, Princes Street, Lothian Road, Tollcross and Morningside to Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s official residence at around 12.30pm on Thursday 16 September.
On Friday, The Pope will travel in the Popemobile from Lambeth Palace across Lambeth Bridge and along Millbank and is due to arrive at the Palace of Westminster at around 5pm.
The journey to Hyde Park on Saturday will see the specially made white vehicle travel along Horse Guards Road, The Mall, Constitution Hill and Hyde Park Corner before arriving at Hyde Park for the Prayer Vigil at around 6pm.
And on Sunday, The Holy Father will travel in the Popemobile along a stretch of the Hagley Road during his visit to Birmingham.
Several different versions of the Popemobile have been used since it's introduction in 1978 but Pope Benedict XVI's preferred vehicle when travelling abroad is a modified Mercedes-Benz M-Class sport utility vehicle. It usually bears the registration SCV, which stands for Status Civitatis Vaticanae - the Latin for Vatican City State.
