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.

This is a really stunning performance venue, and I don't think there is a single bad seat in the house. It is beautiful inside and out. Just a shame that as with all places like this the drinks are so overpriced.

This of course is, at least to me, a must have been music venue. We had the pleasure of going here for the "not dead yet" Phil Collins tour. The ambiance in the royal Albert hall alone is worth going to a concert or show...More

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

For London pass holders wanting to partake in the grand tour, how do we secure tickets for a time slot? Or are you supposed to just show up for a tour. Thanks in advance for the help.

Not sure if this is included in the London Pass. We booked online in advance, but you could call the box office at The Royal Albert Hall 020 75898212 Sorry don't have code from USA
I am wondering what is the best way to get to Albert Hall from Sky Garden, and how long it will take? We have booked Sky Garden, and will have a little more than an hour after, to get to our tour in Albert Hall

If I order food in a second tier box, what would prevent the other patrons from eating it? I'm going to be in second tier, 39, seats 1 and 2. Does anyone know if I'll be sharing this box with others?
