Standing majestically in South Kensington The Royal Albert Hall is an iconic symbol of London's cultural heritage. The well-known domed building reflects the Victorian architectural style and embodies both grandeur and history and, on this tour, you’ll get to know this world-renowned landmark like never before.

Commissioned by Queen Victoria to commemorate her beloved husband Prince Albert, the building, designed by architect Captain Francis Fowke, was first opened to the public in 1871. Since opening its doors, the venue has hosted an impressive line-up of events from ballets to boxing, from rock performers to classic concerts and is perhaps most well known as the home of the annual BBC proms. The distinctive domed structure and acoustic ‘mushrooms’ in the ceiling have created top-tier acoustics and ensure the venue is well-loved by audiences and performers alike.

Now you can head behind the curtain and see behind-the-scenes areas that the public normally doesn’t have access to. 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’re a history hunter, an architecture addict or mad for music, this tour promises to take you along on a celebration of live music,as it immerses you in the enduring legacy of one of London's most recognisable venues.
