Since you can't tour Buckingham Palace during most times of year, the Royal Mews are the next best thing. There are a few horses, but mostly amazing carriages. The Queen's Diamond Jubilee carriage and the coronation carriage were incredible to see. There were also several...More

This facility houses some of the huge horses that pull the Royal family’s ceremonial coaches. There were 3 of them housed when we visited. But the coaches themselves were probably the highlight. Do take the free audio guide as it briefly explains each of them....More

A really interesting place to visit. The horses were beautiful and the carriages were incredible to see in person. The audio guide gave all the information you needed and more with short video clips and inside views on the screen. The staff were extremely friendly...More

Well worth a visit to see where the riding and carriage horses train.The carriages and coaches are magnificent and historic. One can only marvel at The Coronation Golden Coach.The tack room showed how much hard work is needed behind the scenes.

Only a small display so didn't take very long to walk thru. Audio guides very good. Carriage displays amazing - they are simply stunning.

We went here to try to get the most out of our pass. It was ok, but I wish we'd spent more time at some of the other museums instead.

Great place to view some beautiful carriages, the history and self paced audio tour are very impressive. We enjoyed spending about an hour here, would recommend it if you are close by and have an hour or so.

The Royal Mews is nice to have a walk around if you’re interested in the royal family in general. They provide free audio and visual guide so you can listen to all the information instead of having to listen, which makes it much easier to...More

This was an interesting place. Many of the royal carriages are on display with a history board to give details. There were a handful of horses there as well. It's a rather small site and not as rich in history and detail as the other...More

Westminster
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

You may buy tickets at the venue but I guess the chance is limited, as most of the tickets should have been sold online.

It was included with our London Pass. Tons of attractions and a good way to spend money in Central London.

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.
