The BBC Proms season is an excellent way to experience classical music from many different national and international orchestras at reasonable cost. The best value restaurant is the Verdi, new this season, which offers first-class Italian food at good prices. The best approach s to have your starter and main meal before the concert and then return for dessert and... More

As avid classical music lovers, we were very excited to be able to enjoy the sound of Beethoven, Dvořák and Strauss’s works in the Royal Albert Hall. With the 48 £ tickets we purchased, we got the wonderful seats at the Stalls which enabled us to have an amazing view of the whole stage from above. Much to our pleasure,... More

Today I visited the Royal Albert Hall with 3 girlfriends. We had booked on the hour long History of the Proms and Tour of the RAH. We had a wonderfully knowledgeable young Canadian guide who walked and talked us through the Royal Albert Hall. Giving us an insight into the formation of the Proms in the late 19th century to...

We had the pleasure of seeing Robert Plant & Van Morrison playing live here over 2 days of the blues festival. Both artists didn't disappoint. The venue itself is a beautiful building. The sound is pretty good.

Went on a tour of the Royal Albert Hall, where we saw many parts of the delightful and famous building - from the main arena (where there was a rehearsal for a Proms concert underway!) to the Queen's Entrance and Room. The tour guide Richard was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the building and the area.

Royal Albert Hall is a concert hall on the northern edge of South Kensington, London, best known for holding the annual summer Proms concerts since 1941. The Royal Albert Hall was built to fulfill the vision of Prince Albert (Queen Victoria's consort) of a 'Central Hall' that would be used to promote understanding and appreciation of the Arts and Sciences...

Just back from a girlie weekend and wanted to tell you about this treat my cousin and I had. An afternoon tea tour at this magnificent building, we were so lucky as we were the only ones with our tour guide Courtney, who was very informative and friendly. After our very interesting tour we were taken into a beautiful restaurant... More

Prom 24 attended on 4th August featuring Donald Runnicles as conductor. The hall whilst classical seemed much smaller than I imagined, but there was plenty of leg room and reasonably easy to find your way around. As expected food and drink was very expensive, but it very easy to bring your own in. Dress code was very casual as noted... More

We took a gamble taking our children but it was so worth while. We has a wonderful evening at one of the proms, the children behaved fantastically well although we had seats in a loggia box and had the second of the two rows, with more leg room and less chance of disturbing anyone. We needn't have worried because they... More

Everyone should take in a show at the Albert Hall. Is there really any theatrical experience more grand than this in the entire UK? Whether it's one of the private boxes, grand old circle seats or choir stalls you're sitting in you will always be caught up by the sense of occasion. That is, of course, providing you don't fancy...
