This attraction is neat as you get to see the royal family’s horses and carriages. This is located next to Buckingham Palace. The royal carriages are spectacular and interesting. Staff is nice, pictures allowed without flash except the government issued vehicles throughout compound.

We visited the Mews about mid morning on a week day and hardly anyone was there. It was so fun to see and learn about the carriages that we've seen on television so many times. Some were very simple and functional while others were grand...More

This is a great place to visit in conjunction with Buckingham Palace. We spent approx. an hour or so here. It was great to be able to see the Royal Carriages up close. The included audio guide was very well down.

Rick Steves doesn't put this very much but I disagree with him. We really enjoyed looking at the Royal cars and Coaches, especially the last one! Wow. This is a quickie but we enjoyed it, especially since it is included in the London Pass.

The London Pass includes a visit to the Royal Mews and you should do it. We were lucky that at the time of our visit, there were very few people there. The carriages, most still used today, are quite spectacular and whilst there was only...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

The location is to the left of Buckingham Palace, towards Victoria. The entrance only allows you to the news and not the palace or Royal Gallery.

It's about the carriages that the royal horses pull. You might see some horses but it will be random. If you want to see horses, see the changing of the guard at horseguards parade. Lots of horses & much pomp & cremony.
