The Royal Mews contains various carriages used by the King's and Queens of England in the past centuries. The Queen's automobile is also on display. The newest carriage of the Queen has electric windows and air-conditioning.

Was small, did not do the audio tour. Only saw 2 horses. Carriages were beautiful. Spent 30 minutes here. They did have free guided tours, but we did not partake.
