What a fantastic venue. We were lucky to see the Proms that have been running here recently. In the entry hall they have a gallery depicting all the marvellous artists that have performed there over the years. We enjoyed the performance and recommend that all visitors to London go and see this wonderful hall.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to see the Royal Albert Hall while in London. We came to see Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in concert. The concert was excellent, but the fact that we were seeing it in this amazing and historic venue added icing to the cake. It is a beautiful facility and the list of... More

You can not see inside the hall without doing the tour, which I recommend doing anyway. Its an amazing building with brilliant history. The tour was very good and usually runs ever 30 minutes for 1 hour. Our guide was very informative. If there is rehearsals going on inside the theatre they allow you to sit and watch for a... More

Absolutely fabulous show. From beginning to end it was awe inspiring. We had seen Quidam a year previous which was good but Kooza was a truly uplifting and inspirational show. I cried throughout the show and wanted it to never end. Brilliant. One small point RAH, £25 for a couple of gins and tonics in plastic glasses not necessary. You... More

We were passing without a plan for the evening & got very good choir seats. Directions from the ticket office were a little unclear - however with a little lateral thinking from the steward we were seated without having to retrace our steps. We had good advice from an experienced concert goer in the queue - we'd been offered tickets... More

Went to second night of the proms. The concert was sold out but I wanted to prom anyway. Joined the queue at about 3.30 for concert at 7:30. £5 to get in. Had a place quite near the front with excellent view. Wonderful concert with great atmosphere.

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.
