Royal Albert Hall
& Breakfast Pastries
The Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s most iconic music venues and tourist attractions. Upon arrival be greeted with tea or coffee and pastries before starting your Royal Albert Hall tour, with a knowledgeable in-house guide.
Did you know that the Royal Albert Hall once hosted a séance; flooded the auditorium with 56,000 litres of water for an opera concert; and that criminals, as well as musicians and politicians, have graced the Hall’s stage?
Together with a friendly guide, you’ll take a peek at the royal areas of the Hall, see the breathtaking auditorium, and glimpse the stage where the world’s stars have appeared – from Arctic Monkeys to Muhammad Ali, BBC Proms to Beyoncé, Cirque du Soleil to Winston Churchill, and Albert Einstein to Ed Sheeran.
You’ll discover how the building was funded, the royal love story that nearly stopped it from being built, and how one of the UK’s most enduring engineering challenges – the Royal Albert Hall echo was solved. You might even be lucky enough to hear a legendary artist in sound check.
Following your Royal Albert Hall tour, why not spend free time exploring the V&A Museum - the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 2.27 million objects - or the Science Museum whose world-class collection forms an enduring record of scientific, technological and medical advancement from across the globe. With a range of exhibitions at both museums, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
