Went for a show, Cirque du Solei, in the stalls and very good seats. But I'm reviewing the RAH. The history, the people that have graced these stair cases. I was just in awe of the place. I would love to see more of it...More

We went to see our first opera, and had a meal prior. This sparked the romance back between my husband and I. Was just something everyone should experience. Loved it so much booked for March again....

Fantastic venue (not a bad seat in the house), great show (Cirque du Soleil rarely disappoint) and great atmosphere. The performers were, simply put, fantastic. The acrobats, jugglers, unicyclists and dancers were all phenomenal.

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

We were in Box 12 Grand Tier, front row... didn’t notice neighbours at all? Seats 1&2 had speakers just in front so might choose another box next time - great views though.

We had a smaller 5 person box and sat at the front. But the seats behind are on raised floor, plus the seats are raised also. So should be good view for you.
