If you love horses, royals, carriages and history then you are in for a treat. There is no time limit on how long you spend but you'll need minimum 1 hour. The carriages are jaw dropping and you will see a few stabled horses. The Royal's cars are garaged here. You will be given an audio guide and there are... More

We were so lucky to visit when there was an event going on. We watched the horses warming up in the yard and being inspected as they prepared for some ambassadors visits. This made the visit to the Mews. The stables and carriages were impressive but, of course, the horses were what we wanted to see and with four carriages... More

I've been to London many times, but never heard of this place. In town with my family for Spring Break and looking for things that would interest a teenager, i came across many positive reviews. We spent one day near Buckingham Palace (it was closed so no tours), and this was around the corner. It was terrific, all the way... More

Based on the number of people on the tour, it doesn't seem a popular place for tourists. I would say that if you miss this on your visit to London, you've missed a true gem. Seeing the horses and learning about their training and seeing the Royal Carriages was spectacular. My mouth honestly dropped open and I gasped when I... More

I decided to go to this place when I picked up a leaflet from my local library and being fond and curious of the British royal family and horses. I came via underground to London Victoria, which is its nearest underground station. Although well signposted, any newcomer to London can easily walk past it without knowing as its design blends...

Second visit in 6 months mainly due to when you pay for the entrance and have your ticket stamped you are able to visit again within 12 months free. Could spend 90 mins here with audio guide viewing historical carriages that cannot be repeated anywhere in the world.

I come from a horse family so this was quite interesting to me. As they emphasize, this is a working royal department and not a museum. And so they have you follow a cordoned off path as you make your way through the self-guided audio tour. I was able to see 4 horses in their stalls toward the entrance and... More

A really informative interactive visit t inside the news at Buckingham Palace. Amazingly simple to get around and highlights some of the most common carriages used by the royal family on precessions including the state coach and the cars used by the royal family Only a short museum but well priced at just £10 per adult

Our tour of the Royal Mews was included with our admission ticket to view Buckingham Palace. We had put aside the entire day to spend at the Palace, the Gallery and the Mews and we were glad that we did. We were able to take our time and view everything without rushing. The Royal Mews was splendid. The coaches were... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
