Royal Albert Hall Information

Royal Albert Hall - Concert Venue in London.

Located across from the Kensington Gardens in London, the Royal Albert Hall was opened in 1871 and dedicated to Queen Victoria’s late husband, Prince Albert.

The building, which is a spectacle in itself, hosts over a million people each year eager to attend the wide variety of performances held on its stage. The Hall has hosted national and international artists from all entertainment genres including music concerts, ballet, opera, sports, award ceremonies, and even school events. The concert hall is known for incredible acoustics achieved by fiberglass discs or “mushrooms” that lay below the building’s dome.

The 5,200-seat venue is truly iconic in every sense of the word. Performers at Albert Hall have included everyone from Led Zeppelin and the Killers to the Royal Philharmonic and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera.

An annual event at the Royal Albert Hall is BBC’s Promenade classical music concert series, also known as the Proms. Other regular appearances at the Hall include performances by Cirque du Soleil, Eric Clapton, and the English National Ballet.

The Royal Albert Hall also appeared in Alfred Hitchcock’s famous film The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Grand Old England
Slarti B. Jun 19, 2013
Going to the Albert Hall gives you the opportunity to listen to a wide range of genres but more importantly allows you to experience Grand Old England. Plush red carpets adorn the wide staircases leading to elegant foyers filled, at least on Prom nights, with tastefully dressed and gently conversing Britons. It's circular design can lend the endless corridors around the main hall a post-modern confusion that only adds to the grand and almost overpowering effect of this colossal building. Inside the concert hall the boxes (grouped private seating on the upper levels) form a medieval dovecote, culminating in the . The blooming mushrooms dangle like cartoon clouds above everything, gently glowing from the stage lights, responsible for the renowned acoustics of the Albert Hall. In short, a trip to the Albert Hall will envelop you in grandeur, recreating you as aristocracy for one red and gold embellished night..
London’s magnificent concert hall is a spectacle in its own right
Lucy R. Apr 21, 2013
One of the true treasures of London, the Royal Albert Hall is a historic concert hall in South Kensington. It stands majestically on the southern edge of Hyde Park, among the iconic museum quarter in London’s most exclusive district. The elaborate venue dates back to 1871, when it was opened by Queen Victoria to pay tribute to her late husband, Prince Albert, who had a vision to create a central hall that would promote the arts and sciences. Now a grade I listed building and a registered charity, the Royal Albert Hall hosts an assortment of concerts and events from a broad spectrum of genres. This includes ballets, rock and pop concerts, orchestras, sports events, award ceremonies and many more. The hall famously hosts the BBC Proms - an annual eight-week summer season of classical music concerts, and boasts an impressive timeline of events that feature some of the world’s top performers and leading figures. The spectacular circular exterior showcases elaborate carvings, pillared windows and a glass dome roof. Inside, its design is equally grand, lined with red carpet corridors around its rim, and exhibiting the towering organ that proudly governs the auditorium. If you’re not lucky enough to see a performance inside this iconic venue, regular informative tours are on offer, some of which may even grant backstage access!
Architecture and Acrobats
James C. Apr 21, 2013
On arriving in central London, this time by car, parked with great ease behind the venue in the Imperial College car park. At only £10, and if you're not adverse to a slow getaway we found this an excellent way to travel. South Kensington (District, Circle and Piccadilly Lines) and High Street Kensington (District and Circle Lines) are the closest Underground stations to the Hall. Approximately 10 minutes stroll from both stations. The exterior on your approach never fails to impress, London at it's grandest. Queen Victoria completing her beloved Albert's brainchild of 'facilities for the enlightenment of the public'. Welcomed by smiling staff and shown to our box. Close proximity to one of many bars made getting refreshments simple. I hear the restaurant food was fantastic from the other patrons sharing our box. Even by the time you've made yourself comfortable the hall and it's atmosphere captivates you. Garbled voices below and the extended stage for tonight's Cirque du Soleil performance bringing you closer than ever to the excitement.. Mind boggling action and entertainment from Montreal's finest. Three hours of acrobats, music and comedy clowns. Our bird's eye view, the venue's superb acoustics, dazzling light show and soaring trapeze artists made for an astounding experience. Classic England, Victorian architectural splendour, great lights and sound. Having seen several rock, jazz and classical concerts at The Royal Albert Hall over the years I can only give the venue a big thumb's up.
Uniquely London
Nick T. Aug 24, 2012
London has a million awesome things to do and places to see, but if you're going to see a concert it is hard to find a cooler and more uniquely London venue that the Royal Albert Hall. Just being there makes you feel british. The idea of going to see a show whether its Adele, Dizzee Rascal or Bloc Party in such an ornate and proper setting is hilarious. They also host all different types of shows so everyone is bound to find a performance at some point here that interesting. I saw a classical music concert here, and despite being distinctly a non-classical music fan, could not help but enjoy myself. Being in that atmosphere for a show is enough to make your experience worth it.
