The Royal Albert Hall Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Visit: Royal Albert Hall Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AP England

    Take a peek inside London's famous music venue on a guided tour, and glimpse the stage where the world's greatest performers, musicians, and sports stars have appeared - from Arctic Monkeys to Muhammad Ali, BBC Proms to Beyoncé, Cirque du Soleil to Winston Churchill, Einstein to Ed Sheeran, and Kylie to Kraftwerk (we could go on).

    Together with a friendly guide, you’ll uncover the fascinating and surprising history of the Hall, how it was funded, and the love story that nearly stopped it from being built. 

    As you move through the building, you'll notice photos of the Hall's most iconic performances. Look out for your favourite artist and remember to ask your guide questions because each has their own inside and backstage stories to tell which really bring these images to life! 

    You’ll see the Royal areas of the Hall, taking in the Queen’s Box and the Royal Retiring Room (where the Queen hangs out!) – If you’re lucky, you may even get to see an artist in sound check!

    Good tour, tour guide very informative, you basically do a circle of the Hall at the same level as the Royal box. For me it would be improved by going down to floor level and then get the all round view
