Buckingham Palace Mews

Liverpool, Warrington, Stratford

The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Our journey today takes you to the Capital, via London Victoria Station which sits behind Buckingham Palace. Your visit will continue the theme of vintage luxury travel as you visit the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace.

 

Your journey begins as your steward welcomes you aboard the Northern Belle to your comfortable armchair seat. Elegant tables laid with starched tablecloths, uniquely branded silverware and highly polished glasses complement the luxurious carriages.

Fine dining is a highlight of every journey and, once you have settled in, a delicious brunch with a Bellini is served as you travel South. In the care of your steward, sit back and relax in the convivial atmosphere, enjoying the views from your window. On the Northern Belle, the journey is as exciting as the destination.

On arrival in London you have a short five minute walk from London Victoria Station to Buckingham Place. The Royal Mews  & Stables are responsible for all the road travel arrangements for The Queen and members of the Royal Family.

The present Royal Mews is in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, to the south of Buckingham Palace Gardens, near Grosvenor Place.

In the 1760s George III moved some of his day-to-day horses and carriages to the grounds of Buckingham House, which he had acquired in 1762 for his wife’s use.

The state coaches and other carriages are kept there, along with about 30 horses, together with their modern counterparts, the Rolls Royce state motor cars. Coachmen, grooms, chauffeurs and other staff are accommodated in flats above the carriage houses and stables.

As you wander through the exhibiton, you will see the fabulous Golden State coach used for coronations, the Diamond Jubilee state coach and some fine examples of the wonderful livery worn by the footmen. 

Look out for a horse or two during your visit to the Mews. There are 2 types of horses used to pull the carriages at the Mews: Windsor Greys and Cleveland Bays. 

After a wonderful day rejoin the train, where we welcome you back on board the Northern Belle with a refreshing glass of chilled champagne.

Later, you are served a sumptuous five-course dinner accompanied by bottle of wine per couple, as we wend our way home.
