We spent an evening at the Royal Albert Hall. Fabulous - lots of bars, comfortable seats and all that history surrounding you. It was a lot smaller than I had envisioned which meant we felt very near to the stage which was great. Definatley recommend a visit.

The most amazing building, any concert will be great here and any seat too. We had a box, but honestly due to the shape of the building you would be fine anywhere.

This concert hall, located in South Kensington close to Hide Park, has a history. It was open by Queen Victoria. It is quite big, with over 5000 seats. It has an ellipse shape, with a high dome. Many events are promoted by the venue. You can see concerts, but also tennis matches, operas, see films, etc. You can visit the... More

I was fortunate enough to see Eric Clapton perform at the Royal Albert Hall during his 70th Birthday celebration. He put on a fantastic show and the Royal Albert Hall was simply the finest and most intimate venue in which I've ever visited. I enjoyed every moment of the show, the acoustics are incredible.

We visited the Royal Albert Hall for the final night of the Eric Clapton tour. We sat in the choir seats which were good value for money even if the performers didn't turn round to acknowledge us very often. It was great to see behind the scenes and watch the musicians from a great vantage point. The architecture and design... More

What a stunning venue. The atmosphere was amazing and the acoustics were fantastic. Very intimate performance- preferable to massive stadium.

As ever a great venue and a great concert. 5 rows from the stage and comfortable seats meant a great evening and saw him play Nostradamus for the first time in nearly 15 years and this time with the full band , memorable :)

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
