Royal Mews, London

(4/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • I quite enjoyed my guided tour of the Royal Mews! It is definitely worth a visit! The Royal Mews was established by King George III shortly after purchasing Buckingham Palace in 1760. This museum is d...  more »
  • 裡面有皇室各個慶典活動的用車,包括女王登機大典 查理王子和黛安娜王菲結婚用車,以及世紀婚李威廉王子和凱特王妃婚禮用車 
  • Among the most beautiful stables still operational, the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace housing the Royal collection of historic carriages. Are also located in vehicles (on horseback and motorboats) used for coronations, State visits, Royal Weddings, the official opening of the new Parliament and official engagements. The most ostentatious carriage between those exposed is the Gold State Coach, the golden carriage is used during the celebrations of the Golden Jubilee in 2002. Since they could be in service, training or away from London, the horses are not always visible. Once you go there, it's pretty interesting

  • This little gem, just on the other side of Buckingham Palace, is something every horse and carriage lover should visit. I was a little apprehensive at first, when my wife suggested we go, but once we started the tour, it was rather engaging and interesting. Several of the Queen's carriages are on display to view that chronicle the history of their usage and the events they were used for. There were a few of the horses in their stalls to view, but no petting allowed. It's a quaint little spread that shows just how much more work is involved with accommodating the royalty, during special functions.
  • What they showed was really interesting. However I have to admit that we expected a larger collection for the price paid. Staff were helpful and friendly explaining the exhibits. Plus the free audio guide received at the entrance is really good It's 8 pound per adult
  • A good chance to see all the coaches used by the Royals. Audio tour available for adults and Children. A wonderful experience to see the Queens stables said my 8 yr old.
  • 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.
  • Was part of our London pass for me it was a great pop in take a quick audio tour and head out after our palace tour idk if it's worth 9 pounds but pretty cool.
