Being both a royals fan and a horse enthusiast, the Royal Mews was definitely on my A-List. Here you can, via an audio guide, view the stables, the gorgeous coaches and motor vehicles of the kings and queens. On display were the antique coaches still...More

This tour included 2 horses and most of the royal coaches. It was also supposed to include motor vehicles, however none were on display. This tour did not live up to the advertised description.

The Royal Mews has an awesome collection of royal (past and current) cars and carriages. Can't forget the horses. The audio tour is incredibly informative, interesting and very well done. It was very quiet when we visited, very few tourists. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
