Nanny Anita's Day Out at the Royal Mews | My Baba

Tucked away along Buckingham Palace Road is the entrance to a really sweet gem of a place.  Easily overlooked for the more exciting Palace, the Royal Mews offers an outing that is perfect for little ones, especially if they like horses.  

I took my two charges (4 and 3 years) here one morning in half term and we had such a blast. It only takes about an hour to do and prices are very reasonable (under 5s are free), so if you are looking for an adventure for a morning or afternoon then this it. We got the chance to look at all the state carriages and some of the smaller ones that belonged to the royal children, and even a sleigh that Father Christmas uses! Unfortunately most of the horses were out training or being exercised, but we did see them all coming back in, in all their glory (did you know the white horses pull the Queen’s carriage?).

There are plenty of guides around ready to answer any questions that you or your little ones might have, and if you need a break there is a learning room where they can chill and colour pictures. The best part is that if you time it right (which we did, but more by accident) you can exit the mews (via the conveniently  placed gift shop) and head round to the front of Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards.
