The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace is a hidden gem in the heart of London. Perfect for half term or one to add to the bucket list. Lara’s family visited this summer and realised it ticked all the boxes — culture, history, horses, cars, carriages, and stories that have inspired fairytales! It’s a semi outdoor museum, so it’s easy to relax at, as well. Book a space and visit The Queen’s working stables, it’s a wonderful day in London.
