Lovely evening of Rachmaninov music with conductor Thomas Dusgaard. Cafe crowded and queues for toilets, tight security with bag searches - very good. Nice atmosphere with everyone enjoying the music. A taste of nostalgia. Although I went on my own, got chatting to some prommers...More

We saw a number of concerts during the proms season. We also did the tour of the hall during an afternoon. The tour was interesting and added some good background to the hall. The highlight was seeing th queens reception room.

Excellent location. Plenty leg room in Stalls. Chairs rotate so you don't have to stand every time someone needs in or out. Sound quality is impressive!

Excellent food as always - we've been there before a Prom for many years and it has been consistently good. Excellent service from Jose who waited on us and from the kitchen, which is really well geared up for pre-show diners. Highly recommended.

BBC Proms concerts are many and varied and each day a hundred or a few hundred standing tickets go on sale - you can only buy one each person registered but they cost under £10. The music is wonderful, the setting beautiful and this is...More

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

mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
