Royal Mews, London
Perhaps the most royal stables to be seen throughout the world, the Royal Mews houses not just the Queen's horses, but also the carriages used for official duties and ceremonies. Here, you can see the Gold State Coach, last used for the Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002, as well as horse-drawn carriages used for coronations, state visits, royal weddings and the lavish State Opening of Parliament. Some of the Queen's cars are also stored at the Royal Mews, while the working horses that carry the carriages also live here. Horse fans will find Cleveland Bays, a breed of carriage horse, and Windsor greys, which traditionally draw the Queen's carriage. Other attractions at Buckingham Palace include the Queen's Gallery, which has changing exhibitions of items from the Royal Collection, from paintings to furniture. In the summer, visitors can walk through the 19 State Rooms, used for entertaining guests and holding grand banquets. From Buckingham Palace, you can watch the Changing of the Guard and walk down the Mall towards Trafalgar Square to see the Horse Guards.
