Full description
The Royal Mews is an important branch of the Lord Chamberlain's Office and provides road transport for The Queen and members of the Royal Family by both horse-drawn carriage and motor car. It is also one of the finest working stables still in existence, responsible for the training of the Windsor Greys and Cleveland Bays, the horses that pull the royal carriages. Among the historic coaches and carriages on display is the spectacular new Diamond Jubilee State Coach, which conveyed Her Majesty The Queen on the State Opening of Parliament on 4 June 2014. What's more, cast your eye over the luxurious Australian State Coach, with central heating and electric windows, which carried The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace after the Royal Wedding in 2011. The most dazzling of all is the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every coronation since that of George IV in 1821.  Among the vehicles on display, you can also find the Irish State Coach, purchased by Queen Victoria in 1852. Queen Victoria, King George VI and Her Majesty The Queen have all travelled to the State Opening of Parliament in this carriage.  During your visit to the Royal Mews, relish the opportunity to see some of The Queen’s horses that draw the coaches and carriages housed in the Mews. Visitors to the Royal Mews can also see some of the fine livery worn by The Queen’s coachmen. Apart from a few small details, it remains much the same as it was in Victorian times.  Remarkably, some of the tailors used for production of liveries today are the same companies employed during the reign of George III in the 18th century.

We had a great time at the royal stables. The audio guide allows you to understand all the explanations. The visit is organized in such a way that there are not too many people there at the same time. This lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour, which is very good with young children.

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace. The directions etc in the email were tip top, the procedure to exchange vouchers for tickets was a simple and smooth process. We were totally in awe to see our history right there in front of our eyes. Fantastic and worth every penny. The gift shop on leaving was amazing. The staff in the shop on Saturday morning, 6th August 2022, were lovely. Very friendly and chatty, helpful and most knowledgeable of the products on sale. I must say I was extremely surprised at the value for money too, beautiful gifts and souvenirs, and cheaper than the tourist shops scattered all over London.

The visit is worthwhile especially because of the great carriages on display. With the video guide you will learn briefly and concisely the key points of the stables and the individual carriages. The only drop of bitterness for us was that only two horses could be seen, one would have expected more.
