Wow Fantastic scenery, beautifully performed. 10/10 Royal Albert Hall. Also dined at the Coda restuarant, expensive, but tasty.

First visit to the hall to see Madam Butterfly. The venue is spectacular though surprisingly smaller than I anticipated. Meal at Verdi's was great and would recommend however the cafe bar downstairs was bedlum. Better to go through and have a drink at the inside bar. Excellent view (we had stalls) and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was sublime. Perfect venue... More

Wow! The Albert Hall is a stunning venue, coupled with a powerful performance of Carmina Burana by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, 400 voices blew away the cobwebs!

I have to admit that I didn't understand a single word that was uttered throughout this performance but that's not to say that opera was any less spectacular. The Royal Albert Hall is a sight to behold in its own right, and I get the impression that is moulds depending on what ever it is that you may be watching.... More

Went to see Madam Butterfly this afternoon in this beautiful historic setting. Really enjoyed a fantastic 'in the round set' and a powerful performance from the cast brought Puccini's opera to life. The use of water and lighting to create the Japanese water garden in the opera gave another dimension to this stunning production and complemented the beautiful music from... More

Went to see Madame Butterfly and the exquisite Royal Albert Hall. The production was fabulously executed with a simplistic set that captured the essence of the tragedy love story great cast and definitely worth seeing. We had drinks and a snack in Berry Bros downstairs staff we accommodating as my booking had not come through in the list had a... More

If you arrange to go to London these days, you HAVE to go and watch this! I love cirque du soleil in general and I always expect the best of them. With this show they reminded me why I'm such a big fun! Apparently you can only book from the Royal Albert Hall your tickets. My boyfriend told me he... More

After seeing the Royal Albert hall on tv so many times we decided to do the tour. Our guide was fantastic and had an abundance of knowledge and interesting facts about the Hall. It is definitely worth a visit.

I rarely, exceptionally rarely use such words like this with locations. And to put them all together in one phrase tells you something. I happened to visit the Royal Albert Hall to see Cirque du Soleil recently. (Kooza performance). I was really excited about going, so had a heightened sense of the occasion. (If you havent ever seen Cirque -... More

You really haven't seen The Royal Albert Hall until you have been on the tour. Our tour guide was well informed and entertaining and the time just flew by. From the top gallery to the Queens withdrawing room it was incredible and you even get a peek inside the Royal Box. The history of the building and the unusual events... More
