A vital part of royal life since the reign of Richard II, Royal Mews houses the cars, carriages, and horses used by the monarchy on royal and state occasions. It is considered one of the finest working stables in existence. Marvel at the ornate detail of the carriages, including the particularly lavish Gold State Coach. It has been used at every coronation since that of George IV in 1921. You can also admire the some of the fine livery worn by the Queen’s coachmen, which has remained largely unchanged since Victorian times. Be sure to pick up a headset for a free audio tour outlining the history of the Royal Mews and giving insights into how it operates today. Guided tours are also available during peak tourist season. On arrival, you and your belongings will be subjected to airport-style security checks. Try to bring as little as possible with you to get through the security screening more quickly. Using our custom trip planner, London attractions like Royal Mews can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Easier to access than the State rooms and open all year round a visit to the Royal Mews includes a tour of the stables, a glimpse of a huge shed in London’s equivalent of Vienna’s Spanish Riding...

Interesting history and ability to view the carriages of the royal family. Audio guide is solid but they do often have hourly guided tours. Just a bit specific and niche so only recommended for real royal family fanatics.
This attraction is part of London Pass, so entrance is included in the price. If you are really into the royal family and or a big fan of historic carriages then this would make an interesting place to visit. They pretty much have all the royal carriages that were used for special occasions over time. Audio guide was included with the ticket. And there is a gift shop when you exit the place.
Very interesting exhibition of the horses, cars, and carriages of the royal family. We enjoyed reading about each of the carriages and for what occasion they were used. The highlight was at the end with the golden carriage that was also used at the platinum jubilee celebration.
I visited the Royal Mews in London, and I can't believe I hadn't been there before. The Royal Mews is a must-visit attraction for anyone interested in the royal carriages and their vehicles that are used for various occasions. The best part of the visit was seeing the gold state coach, which was simply breathtaking. It's incredible to see the level of craftsmanship and detail that goes into each of these carriages. They have an extensive collection of carriages and it's fascinating to learn about their history and the different types of vehicles they use.I really enjoyed my time there and would highly recommend it."
The Royal Mews is a must-visit for anyone traveling to London. The knowledgeable guides provide an in-depth look at the history and function of the Mews, including the stunning horse-drawn carriages used by the Royal Family. The highlight of my visit was getting up close and personal with the horses, who were all beautifully groomed and well-behaved. The 60-90 minute tour is the perfect length, allowing you to fit in other attractions in the same day. I regret waiting so long to visit, but I'm so glad I finally made it. Don't miss this hidden gem at Buckingham Palace!
