So, if you’re in London in winter and want to visit Buckingham Palace you’re out of luck since palace is closed from 1 of September till 21 July.
In this situation the best next thing is the Royal Mews, located some 300 m from palace gates as you face the palace to the left.
The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace is responsible for all the road travel arrangements for The Queen and members of the Royal Family.
Tickets are 11£ per adult and 6.40£ for under 17 and 10£ for students and is open from Monday to Saturday 10 to 16
You need about 30-60 minuets to visit the place depending how crowded is. You will see some of the horses, the coaches and cars the Queen uses.
Have a look at the pictures I’ve made here.
