We went in December to hear Handel's Messiah. The hall itself is an acoustic marvel. The theater is well worth the visit just for a tour. It is an architectural gem. We hope to return if we are again in London during the Christmas season. There are events there year round and tours of the theater for the public. Take... More

It´s a great place. I went to see Cirque du Soleil, and the place is beautiful. People is well organised, but beverages and food are really expensive.

I have been to the Royal Albert Hall a few times and always to see the Cirque Du Solei . It's an amazing experience . Want to go back every year.

Went here at the end of December to watch a screening of the silent movie 'The Artist' with a live orchestra. Excellent event, and showing this in the Albert Hall made it even more special. Leg room a bit tricky.

An opportunity to see a performance at this historic gem should not be missed. Built in the 1870's, the distinctive dome shaped building is reminiscent of the style of Globe-type theaters. However, the interior beauty of the building, including its beautiful ceiling is unmatched.The acoustics were excellent. We sat on the first level directly across from the stage. Our view... More

I was recently at a concert by the band "The 1975". It is always nice to see famous venues being used by new and unusual young bands. I have often travelled to the Proms at the Albert Hall, which are always wonderful, but it was nice to see a vibrant new band take up the staff and run. The band... More

A wonderful concert hall well worth spending 30 - 40 pounds on visiting for a concert. Often, the performers choose the "folksy" parts of the great classics. So, do go, but please BEHAVE!

We attended a charity concert (Sunflower Jam) and were very impressed with the whole experience. If you haven't been, it's a great venue for seeing a show - you are never too far from the stage and there can't be a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are 1st class too. Being a fabulous building, kept in excellent condition is... More

My wife has always wanted t see the RAH so I booked a tour and concert as a surprise for her. I had already been there as a linesman at the Rothman's Tennis in 1992 and things haven't changed all that much! We were there as the crew were setting up the Auditorium for a Bootleg Beatles Concert (more of... More
