You don't need to be interested in horses or carriages to love this. The carriages are spectacular and if you've even just seen a glimpse of a royal wedding on television, you will recognize these works of art and finery. Very, very interesting place.

“Must See if you're going to Buckingham Palace”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

We went to the Royal Mews whilst filling in time until our allocated entry time for Buckingham Palace. It doesn't take an overly long time to go through, but is interesting all the same. Interesting to see the carriages that transport the Royal Family.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

We enjoyed this immensely. The coaches were beautiful, very ornate, and it was neat to see a couple of the horses and cars. Only difficulty was photographing some of the coaches, you are so close you need a very wide lens, and sometimes the lookie-loos stand right in front of everything for the entire audio guide segment, blocking everyone else's views.

“Surprised by the Hidden Mews”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

My husband and I enjoyed looking at the carriages. They are beautiful. We also got to see some of the horse coming back from the morning training.

I think that teenagers would be bored easily, but it was great for us to do before the changing of the guards. It was part of the London Pass so it was quick and easy and really not any extra cost (because it was on the London Pass).

“Interesting sidetrip, though our teens were bored.”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

My wife and I enjoyed our short time at the Royal Mews though I can't say the same for our two teenage sons who where somewhat bored (understandably). I don't think it was worth the price of admission if purchased individually like we did, but if you have a London Pass or Royal Day Out pass that includes admission to the Mews it's worth a quick stop. All told we we in and out in under an hour.
