Royal Mews Tours

star-3.5
17 Reviews
Royal Mews
Having moved from their original Charing Cross location to Buckingham Palace in 1825, the Royal Mews continue to serve as the monarch’s head stables today. Responsible for the road travel of the entire royal family, the mews are home to a number of famous royal coaches, as well as working carriage horses and several state cars.

The Basics
Book ahead for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the mews’ historical royal displays. Take the opportunity to dress up in livery, or pose like a queen in a replica carriage. Deals like the London Pass allow you to combine your visit with other top London experiences, while hop-on hop-off tours enable flexible exploration of the area. If you have time, conclude your visit with afternoon tea at one of the nearby fancy hotels.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • As the Royal Mews are part of Buckingham Palace, expect airport-style security.
  • Entry includes a multimedia guide, available in nine languages.
  • Remember your umbrella and coat in the rainy months, as most of the site is outside.
  • The Royal Mews is fully accessible to visitors with disabilities.

How to Get There
London Victoria is the nearest mainline station, while Victoria, St. James’s Park, Hyde Park Corner, and Green Park underground stations are all a short walk away. The 11, 211, C1, and C10 buses all stop nearby, as do hop-on hop-off services. Driving is best avoided where possible in the capital.

When to Get There
The Royal Mews are open between February and November, seven days a week in spring and summer and every day except Sunday in winter. Be aware that the working stables can occasionally experience unforeseen closures due to official business.

The Royal Manure
Buckingham Palace is famous for its pristine lawns and long-blooming flowers, but few know that the queen’s soil owes its fertility to the manure collected at the Royal Mews. It’s possible to tour the royal gardens to admire the products of the fresh fertilizer yourself—book ahead to avoid disappointment.
