Another amazing performance by ENB, although the venue was sooo hot. It was difficult to find water!!

You really must see something here. Anything. Just to be part of the atmosphere and see the beautiful architecture. It is stunning. I went to Prom 16 during the 2014 season here last night and loved it. The only small downside is the price of drinks but it is expected in a location like this. It is an iconic building,... More

The RAH is part of Albertopolis, the series of culturally-oriented buildings the grieving Victoria put up in honour of her hubby Albert, who is notable for having imposing side whiskers and dying young. As a building its superb, facing onto the heinously OTT Albert memorial in the lush surroundings of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. As an auditorium it was... More

We went to see Prom 12, during the 2014 season, and the performance was excellent. We opted for a Loggia box, and if I'm honest we will be taking a 2nd tier box next year. Whilst the Loggia is lower and closer to the stage, convenient for nipping to the loo or the bar, the rear corner seats 5 &... More

The Royal Albert hall is an iconic venue; a staple of the London musical scene, and rightly so. The acoustics in the hall allow every sound from the loudest brass chords in huge symphonies to the quietest and most tender notes from a violin solo to be richly and fully exploited, with the colours of every timbre possible able to...

This iconic venue sadly lacks the necessary investment in customer comfort, staging and acoustics to warrant the staging of their programme of concerts and in particular The Proms. If you wish to experience a level of discomfort hitherto reserved for livestock shipped in trailers for slaughter in Italy or France then the RAH is for you. You might be forgiven... More

We just love Opera and use to visit the Royal Opera House regularly. Now we jus visit the Royal Albert Hall when they stage one we want to see. Why would you not? Albert Hall is so much cheaper than ROH and the ambience is better. We now book seats in the second or 3rd row, first row legroom can... More

The building is huge - and as a country boy it always astounds me! This is the second concert I have been to at the Royal Albert Hall, but the first Prom concert. Entry is easy - your ticket tells you which door to enter by. There are plenty to places to buy drinks and refreshments from and queues in... More

I attended for a proms concert. The venue is superb - really beautiful. The catering needs improvement. Very expensive for pretty average food. The marketing is also bad -very little merchandise. However, the venue makes up for it. A wonderful place to watch and listen to a concert. I come every year for the proms and will continue to do... More

We are very proud parents and were lucky enough to go and see our son perform at the Royal Albert hall Mardi gras production. The building is magnificent the sound and atmosphere is the best I have seen and heard, well worth a visit! There are several little cafes and a restaurant but unfortunately we didn't really like what was... More
