Had a great night enjoying Eric Clapton doing what he does best. This place never ceases to amaze me, providing a warm welcome and a fabulous setting for music. I can't wait to return!!

Built to tribute the arts, Prince Albert's love for architectural details are all over this building. The Porto created for the first world fair is still standing. The tour will take you to all behind-the-scenes view of the theater..including the Queens private reception room.

Been coming for 40 years and never disappoints, whether its a sporting event, pop concert, Cirque de Soleil (seen them all) or classical music. Just fabulous

This is an amazing place to watch a gig. Just be warned you will spend 30-50% of your time looking around rather than directly at the stage. Whilst you are there take a look at the walls (if on the stalls level don't forget the...More

I've been to many music venues but none have quite the atmosphere of this place. You can feel the history that's been made here which is captured in amazing photos all around.

I attend here regularly with my husband and other family members. It is our favourite venue for events and we are never disappointed. I especially recommend visiting when they have a film event on and usually the London Philharmonic Orchestra play the sound track while...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

For London pass holders wanting to partake in the grand tour, how do we secure tickets for a time slot? Or are you supposed to just show up for a tour. Thanks in advance for the help.

Not sure if this is included in the London Pass. We booked online in advance, but you could call the box office at The Royal Albert Hall 020 75898212 Sorry don't have code from USA
I am wondering what is the best way to get to Albert Hall from Sky Garden, and how long it will take? We have booked Sky Garden, and will have a little more than an hour after, to get to our tour in Albert Hall

If I order food in a second tier box, what would prevent the other patrons from eating it? I'm going to be in second tier, 39, seats 1 and 2. Does anyone know if I'll be sharing this box with others?

You can eat in the box,but you may be with others and it is a bit of a tight squeeze compared to a restaurant experience. if we are eating we eat before the show in the Berry Brothers bar,(bookable). Its not cheap but we... More
