Create an itinerary including Royal Mews
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. Using our custom trip planner, London attractions like Royal Mews can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The Mews was a highlight of our London visit, in part because it was so easy to see! Just a short walk from the Palace (good to do the two together), there was no line to enter and no real crowd...

  • Did you know,. That the Royal Mews ticket office does not accept pound sterling from the Royal Bank of Scotland. I thought for sure that Scotland was part of the United Kingdom,.... Oh well

  • Beautiful horses and State Coaches within the grounds of Buckingham Palace. Opens to the public. Jolly good. The audio guide is available in several languages. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Please bring your family and friends. This is a ticketed event. Enjoy the Gold State Coach as Her Majesty and members of the Royal Family ride along the Mall to Buckingham Palace.All that glitters is gold on the State Coach.Enjoy the pomp and ceremony along the Mall.Thank you.
  • This was a great experience. I would suggest taking the short, guided tour. Our guide, Mandy, was awesome. Great energy, and information. It's amazing the size and work that goes into these horses and the grounds.
