This is well worth a visit. To see the carriages that you normally only see on tv was good. Each one is housed in its on little stable with an information board telling you about its history. It wasn't crowded at all, so, unlike other...More

We spent about 90min here and really enjoyed our visit. It would have been nice to have seen more horses, but the carriages were stunning. A really good audio tour guide (included in ticket price) which kept the children interested. Not at all busy despite...More

I definitely would recommend this attraction. It was so neat getting to see all the carriages, the tack room and learn a bit more about the transportation for the royal family. We also got to see some of the queen's horses when we first arrived....More

Went back to the Mews to see what had changed since they revamped it. Was pleasantly surprised at what I saw. Its well thought out and laid out now and the addition of an audio guide giving brief descriptions of the exhibits is a bonus....More

We visited the Royal Mews because we were in London when Buckingham Palace was closed to visitors (and because one of our kids loves horses). It was easy to find. The audio guide gave excellent information and the guides were informative and told great stories....More

This was a highlight of our London visit. You'll see not only carriages but also one of the monarch's six state limousines. Our guide was terrific (we've found this to be the case at all the sites administered by Royal Palaces). Exhibits and interactives were...More

Missed this attraction the last time I was in London, so it was definitely on my list to see. The tablet provided with the ticket was great - many of the coaches had multiple videos you could watch and often there was a 360 view...More

Our young daughter loved seeing the horses and all the carriages. It was very interesting learning the history of the mews and carriages. The included audio tour was very good and informative. We visited on a rainy day and found it a great undercover activity.

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

I got a London Pass, and got in that way. The Pass made it so easy to get into several venues. There are some that don’t accept it, but most of what I wanted to see did.

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.
