Tickets for The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace
Immerse yourself in the history of royal transportation
- See The Queen's horses and some of The Queen's staff at work in the royal stable
- Admire the stunning royal coaches and carriages on display, including the Gold State Coach, built for George III in 1762
- Have fun dressing up in specially created livery, practicing your saddle-mounting, and climbing aboard your own coach
The Royal Mews is responsible for all road travel arrangements for The Queen and members of the Royal Family by car and horse-drawn carriage. It houses and looks after the royal collection of historic coaches and carriages, many of which are still used today for official and State occasions such as weddings, the State Opening of Parliament, and State Visits.
The Mews is a working stable where you can see some of The Queen's horses that draw the coaches and carriages you'll see during your visit. A visit to the Royal Mews also gives you the chance to see an extremely rare Rolls Royce Phantom IV car.
The interactive displays let you dress up as a footman, harness a model horse and experience what it feels like to step into a royal carriage with our model landau.

The Diamond Jubilee State Coach is a Frankenstein's monster of British history – the interior is built from pieces taken from the Royal Yacht Britannia, Caernarfon Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, Durham Cathedral, The Mary Rose, 10 Downing Street, and the Antarctic bases of Captain Scott!
There are a couple kid friendly activities, as well as a kid-friendly audio guide.
This is a super place that delivers equestrian interest and historical detail by the bucketful! I suspect in the full tourist season it may be less comfortable, but the splendour of the exhibits and the horses is well worth seeing. Terrific value for money.
I used Tiqets to buy in advance, but if you buy the ticket at the door you can have it stamped so that you can return free of charge during the next 12 months - a really good offer. Beware though .... should there be heavy advance sales you may not get in on the day you want to visit!
How ever I will not be using towers again. They give no discounts on tickets. If you go and pay on the day there are various offers and an option to have your ticket turned into a years pass ( for free) but not if you buy through a third party.
