We had a very interesting tour of the mews. It was not overcrowded and you could take your time looking at all the coaches and royal cars. The only disappointing point was there no horses in any of the stables. The shop was extremely expensive....More

We went to the Royal Mews to see the beautiful horse but the weren’t there ! It’s not cheap! It’s the only place to see the queens golden carriage. Nice stables but not wow.

This hidden gem, which is around the back of Buckingham Palace, is a must. Containing a variety of horse drawn carriages, used by the British Royal Family, and a few horses, the Mews were an interesting place to visit. While there are free audio guides,...More

Without the London Pass, it is 11 euros for a single adult ticket. It mainly includes different royal carriages, cars and materials for the horses. There is also a combined ticket with the Queen’s Gallery for 20.70 euros. But if I had to choose one,...More

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 can just show up. It is down the street from Buckingham Palace, so just go after you view the changing of the guards at the palace!

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.
