    Another of our favourite concert venue in London. A beautiful architecture and acoustic for a concert hall, right in the centre of London

    Went to see Cirque de Soleil (Totem) here which was incredible. It is amazing how they were able to seemlessly incorporate the different moving sets into such an old building.

    The Royal Albert Hall never fails to blow my mind. I have been here a handful of times for concerts, cinematic experiences and live performances. Every event here has been terrific! Simply, beautiful.

    GORGEOUS hall for musicals /concerts / films in concert. Stalls J, K, L r the best! Their online booking is a mess but u can sort it in their box office. There's a bus stop right in front of the hall

    The Ignite brunch at the Royal Albert Hall may not be the most culinary impressive, but the setting and live entertainment make it special. Each session includes performances from talented musicians.

    Undoubtedly it is a sanctuary for music lovers but even if you're not one of them, you must give the ambiance try!

    This really is a great place. Note that in some of the Loggia boxes, there are pillars that obscure the view - check very carefully! Also knee-room is very limited in the Boxes. But Great otherwise!

    A must do experience in London! A magnificent concert venue. If you’re not dining at the on site restaurant, there are snacks & drinks.

    If you fancy a pre-show drink and the nearby pubs are rammed, try Bar 190 at the Grove Hotel. Pricey but nice - and close to the RAH. Better than queuing for drinks inside the venue.

    Go to the BBC Prom and listen to beautiful music in a mesmerizing atmosphere. Don't forget to have a glass of wine during break.

    Holding concerts of The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, and events attended by personalities like The Queen and the Dalai Lama, this hall never fails to hold great shows. Box Office open 9am - 9pm daily.

    It’s as amazing as you are led to believe. What a venue. We saw Cirque du Soleil and it did not disappoint. Seats swivel so you can see all the action.

    Had the most amazing sound quality ever in that venue ! We thought the intro of the gig was a tape, but it was the band actually playing ! The place is beautiful !

    Beautiful place for a concert. If you have the option to order food to your seat, do it! Worth the splurge. You will feel like royalty.

    Try their different tours other than the Grand Tour. Went on a special Behind the Scenes tour and got to look at the bowels of the RAH. Guide Christie was wonderful and accommodating.

    Built by the Vikings, the Royal Albert Hall is where these Norse overlords made Christians captured in battle fight their specially trained duelling monkeys. Totally recommend the tour of the crypts.

    The glass and wrought-iron dome and great mosaic frieze are instantly recognisable, and the grandeur of the hall’s main room and unbeatable acoustics are the envy of venue curators the world over. Read more

    The old lady is an icon and worthy of listening to most things but especially classical music. The tiered stalls and the boxes tend to be my favourite seats

    Great hall to enjoy your favourite artists there. Stalls are good but, if one has the budget, it makes sense to go for seats in the booths. Amazing experience.

    Home of the proms, the legendary BBC proms, home of classical music and just the most spectacular venue for classics.

    get to the venue earlier and choose one of the Bars on the 1st or 2nd floor.. with some luck you will enjoy the sound check as an extra show!

    If you want cheap tickets and a place for your drink, find the rousing circle P seats on row 4, seats 13-25. I paid 7 £ 50 for my seat in row 4, seat 15.
