This was my 16 year olds choice for the day. She absolutely loved it. The horses in the stalls as well as they had a trainer out working with one of the young horses. The carriages were simply stunning.

Very interesting! Royal Stables for Royal Horses. Armed police patrol. There is also a changing of the guard. I don't know about the schedule. We happened upon the guard change. A guard will actually stand streetside for a photo. The horses must be so proud...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

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.

It's about the carriages that the royal horses pull. You might see some horses but it will be random. If you want to see horses, see the changing of the guard at horseguards parade. Lots of horses & much pomp & cremony.
