Guided Tour, Royal Mews, What to see and do

Between April and October, you can take a free 45-minute guided tour of the Royal Mews. The tours are led by the Wardens, dressed in their striking red and navy livery, and depart at regular intervals throughout the day at the start of the visit.

The tour introduces the work of the Royal Mews, whose staff are responsible for all road travel by The Queen and members of the Royal Family, whether by historic carriage or modern car.  You hear how the Mews serves The Queen in the performance of her official duties and prepares for major State and ceremonial occasions, from the State Opening of Parliament to royal weddings.  

Tours take place daily from the Security area at 10:15, 11:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00 and 16:00.
