Visit the transport hub of Buckingham Palace at the Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace. A bustling part of Britain’s Royal heritage in the heart of London.

The Royal Mews is one of the finest working stables anywhere in the world and home to the royal collection of historic coaches and carriages, and the Windsor Grey's and Cleveland Bays, The Queen's horses that pull them along. To this day, the stables are still responsible for all road travel arrangements for Her Majesty The Queen and other members of the Royal Family.

The Royal Mews has been the location of the sovereign’s road transport since 1760 when George III moved his carriage collection closer to his new home at Buckingham Palace – since then it has been updated by several monarchs in keeping with their changing transport needs.

Among the historic coaches and carriages on display are the spectacular Diamond Jubilee State Coach, which was first used to convey Her Majesty The Queen to the State Opening of Parliament in 2014, and the Australian State Coach, which was given to Her Majesty as a gift from the Australian people, and even includes central heating! The most dazzling of all is the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every coronation since that of George IV in 1821.

Since its re-presentation in 2017, visitors can interact and learn even more about the Royal Mews, which includes the opportunity to step into a replica of Queen Victoria's Semi-State Landau, dress up as a footman in specially-created livery, or even learn how to harness a horse!

As well as a complimentary multimedia guide for every visitor, the Royal Mews also offers regular guided tours where visitors can learn the history of the Mews and its association with the British monarchy.

"My boyfriend and I purchased the London Pass ahead of time to use when we got to London and it was wonderful for public transport, avoiding cues and accessing all the sites without having to fawk out cash or paying per site. This also allowed us to see much more than we normally would have. Because you buy the card at a flat rate you are saving money too! It makes travelling around London a pleasure as a tourist."
