Royal Albert Hall

Kensington Gore, Kensington, London SW7 2AP, UK

The iconic Royal Albert Hall is one of the world’s most famous venues and has hosted great artists and millions of visitors since it was opened by Queen Victoria in 1871. The BBC Proms, an eight-week summer season of classical music concerts, is a great introduction to what the Hall has to offer. Before the show, book a Front of House tour to feel the anticipatory energy before a performance. Guides bring to life the history of the institution while providing an up-close experience of the auditorium, the Gallery, and the Queen’s private suites, the Royal Retiring Room.
