The Royal Albert Hall is an iconic symbol of London's cultural heritage and stands majestically in South Kensington, embodying grandeur and history. On this tour, you’ll have a unique opportunity to explore this world-renowned landmark and discover the rich history inside the architectural splendor. 

Designed by esteemed architect Captain Francis Fowke, the hall was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert, and was opened to the public in 1871. Since its inauguration the hall has hosted an impressive array of events, from classical concerts to rock performances, from ballet to boxing matches and is especially well known for being the home of the annual BBC proms. Its distinctive domed structure and intricate ornamentation reflect the Victorian architectural style, while its legendary acoustics have made it a favored venue for musicians and audiences alike. 

You’ll get the chance to go behind the scenes and check out areas of the famous venue that the public doesn’t normally get to see. Walk in the footsteps of royalty in the private royal suites and retiring room, as well as learning all there is to know about the front-of-house areas, the auditorium and the gallery.

Whether you’ve got a passion for music, architecture or cultural history, this tour promises to be an immersive and unforgettable experience celebrating the power of live performance and the enduring legacy of one of London's most recognisable venues.
