Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited Coleraine on four occasions – in 1953, 1977, 2007 and 2014. In July 1953, the Royal Train halted at Coleraine Railway Station, where thousands of school children greeted the Royal Couple. Twenty-four years later, as part of the Silver Jubilee tour in 1977, the Queen visited the New University of Ulster, returning in 2007, to attend a Garden Party hosted by the Secretary of State. In 2014, she laid a wreath at the town’s war memorial in memory of all Irishmen who had made the supreme sacrifice in World War I.
