Opened in 1871, the Royal Albert Hall is the world’s most famous stage. It is also one of London’s most iconic and visited tourist attractions.

Over the years, it has been the scene of over 150,000 performances; from Wagner to Sinatra, The Beatles to Beyonce, Muhammad Ali to Adele, and is home to the celebrated BBC Proms.

Whilst the venue is most famous for its shows by night, by day this treasured building is open for coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and guided tours of the building.

Tip for tour ticket holders: Enjoy a 10% discount on items in the Hall’s gift shop and Cafe Bar.

Went to see Circ De Soleil recently and was very impressed with Royal Albest Hall, realtively easy to get to, with decent transport links, this old iconic venue is well laid out and gives amazing views of the stage from almost every angle. There are some small bar area's for refreshments. Acoustics were fantastic.

One needs to see the Royal Albert Hall as part of the London experience. Get a ticket for a concert or if you want to know more, take also the guided tour. It's one of the most amazing concert halls ever built.

Over the years we have been to the RAH and it is just a stunning building, exceptional seating and sound. It is small enough for all to enjoy and hear. If you ever get the chance to go to see anything here, go as it is always an experience.

We were in London over Christmas and I had booked two spaces for my children to meet Santa Claus at Royal Albert Hall on Christmas Eve. I am absolutely delighted that I did. The beautiful building has so much history contained in it. After the very enjoyable visit with Santa where they came away with little presents and bunch of... More

Booked here as it is the only place we could see Amaluna in this country. So we made a trip of it as we live a 3 hour train ride away from London. The venue is fantastic, a real feeling of history and of something special, thinking about The Proms I have seen on TV. I hadn't realised there were... More

Firstly, the Royal Albert Hall puts on some incredible shows. It is truly a pleasure walking towards it and even better going in. What annoys me though is through booking through the Royal Albert Hall website, there are charges of £2.50 for 'web convenience' per person (What?!) and a £2 charge per e-ticket (WHAT?). I understand that some charges are... More

I have been here many times over many years. Attending the Proms with my parents and siblings to watching Marvin Gaye from up in the gods. I have accompanied and supervised children performing here with their school orchestras. It is a very large venue and yes you constantly move in a circle to get anywhere! Food was always a problem...

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.
