4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Itself the visit not time-consuming, that you can extend more or less with the options of the audio guide. Only for the part of history that have the floats, the imposing are, and to see closely the float parade where the future King, is worth. The cost is not excessive, the visit is enjoyable, and what's worth seeing.

  • In this excursion presents coaches and their history. Each coach is artworks. There are amazing stories of their appearance in England. I advise you to visit this Museum, you can not even for the sake of history, and in order to touch the history of another little touch.

  • Getting the opportunity to see the Queen's Royal carriages was very exciting. I particularly liked seeing the State Coach. Since 1820, the Royal Mews as acted as the Royal stable, carriage house and during the last one hundred years, the limousine garage. Wonderful tour.
  • Underrated attraction. The Queen's carriages hold great significance and were designed carefully with great precision.
  • It was cool to see the horses and the various royal carriages. However, this seemed like a very short tour for £9. I expected a little more for that price.
  • It was so amazing, I'm only 13 then and i really enjoy it! I recommend this place! Especially when you are early and waiting for the Changing of guards to start at buckingham palace, definitely worth while, I'll LOVE. To go back there!
  • Very interesting even though most of the horses were at Ascot on the day we visited. Audio tour very good.
