I'm afraid to admit that I never made it out of the pub yesterday as the 28 degree heat and our nation's apparent commitment to dumbing down continues to niggle; there were relentless affronts yesterday starting with the pubs' determination to continually ply us with that which is variously described as 'house' / 'garage'/ or dance music. There is a... More

Brilliant Prom night quality of performance spoiled by oven like conditions inside. Also would like to see more staff helping people find there way around quite confusing for a first timer.

My husband lived in London for a while but wanted to visit as a tourist and we found that the BBC Proms were starting on the weekend of our visit. We could have got tickets for £9.50 for the first Sport Prom but opted for more expensive ones in the stall. The Hall itself is amazing and we were not... More

What we like about this marvellous building and it's staff, is that despite being essentially a commercial enterprise, we always feel the music, show, event is the most important aspect. Money changes hands but it's of secondary importance. We always leave the Albert Hall with an after glow having enjoyed the performance and the genteel atmosphere of a bygone era.... More

I wish that we could have caught a concert here, but they were setting up for an awards show when we visited London last October. My husband and I went on the tour on a whim, we didn't even know that they had tours until we showed up to see if we could snag concert tickets to something. The tour... More

The world famous Royal Albert Hall is certainly a beautiful sight opposite the picturesque Kensington Gardens. The venue has an excellent on-site cafe serving high quality food and beverage items. The front of house team are very helpful and well presented, however a little more care and attention should be implemented to boast the customer service of the FOH team... More

My daughter and I saw "Romeo and Juliet" at the Royal Albert in June 2014. What a fantastic treat! The London Ballet is magnificent, and the theatre-in-the-round style stage of the Royal Albert ensures a fabulous view of the stage. It is as beautiful a theatre in person as the photos we'd seen, and we were fortunate to get last-minute... More

We did a tour of this building and it is amazing. There is a coffee shop if want a refreshment and just near there is a new mural. This mural covers most famous people who have performed in the hall. Walking into the hall itself was quite daunting. We sat in the box next to the royal box and were... More

I have attended the RAH for our organisations Awards evenings in past years but never reviewed the venue before. The event in 2014 (sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover) was spectacular, the RAH staff were professional throughout and the venue was dressed amazingly, the new Jaguar and Range Rover on stage made it for me. Food was good but the meal... More
