Royal Albert Hall Tours

star-4
55 Reviews
Royal Albert Hall
Opened in 1871 by Queen Victoria and named after her husband, London’s Royal Albert Hall has played host to countless concerts, award ceremonies, and banquets. The domed red-brick auditorium is best known for the Proms, a long-running series of informal and inexpensive concerts designed to make classical music accessible to all. 

The Basics
There are two ways to get inside Royal Albert Hall: book tickets to a concert or take part in a guided tour of the venue. The 1-hour Grand Tour takes place several times a day and provides access to the gallery, the auditorium, and the Royal Retiring Room. Themed tours, including architectural tours and secret history tours, take place on select dates. Packages that include a guided tour as well as afternoon tea or a meal at the on-site Verdi Restaurant are also available. Because of its royal connections, Royal Albert Hall is a frequent inclusion on royal-themed sightseeing tours of London, as are other royal attractions such as Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and Kensington Palace.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Royal Albert Hall is a must-see for royal aficionados and music fans.
  • Tours of the venue include a lot of steps, so wear sturdy, comfortable shoes.   
  • The venue is accessible to wheelchair users. 

How to Get There
Royal Albert Hall is located on Kensington Gore in central London. The closest Tube stations are South Kensington (District, Circle, and Piccadilly lines), and High Street Kensington (District and Circle lines). Both stations are about a 10-minute walk from the venue. 

When to Get There
Grand Tours run most days from around 10am to 4pm, departing every 30 minutes. Consider choosing a day when an artist you admire is due to play, as occasionally you can see performers rehearsing during guided tours of the premises.

The Proms at the Royal Albert Hall
Every year the Royal Albert Hall plays host to the BBC Proms, a wildly popular classical music festival that runs for around eight weeks every summer. You can book tickets for specific events in advance, or wait in line on the night to get one of 1,350 inexpensive standing-only tickets. These standing spots—or Promming places, as they are known—are part of the Proms tradition. 

Address: Kensington Gore, London, England
Admission: Varies by event

Broad boulevards, and the vistas long -- the perfect backdrop for the pomp and pageantry of royal occasions. Piccadilly Circus, London Eye, River Thames, Hyde Park, Albert Hall, even Harrods…you’ll forget to look at your phone. We even do 3 UNESCO World Heritage and 2 Tudor Palaces. Themes vary from British Monarchy’s Royal Palaces to Pomp and Ceremony to UK Parliament and Brexit to Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour in World War Two. Which will it be for you today?
