Kensington Gore, London, England

The Basics

There are two ways to get inside Royal Albert Hall: book tickets to a concert or take part in a guided tour of the venue. The 1-hour Grand Tour takes place several times a day and provides access to the gallery, the auditorium, and the Royal Retiring Room. Themed tours, including architectural tours and secret history tours, take place on select dates. Packages that include a guided tour as well as afternoon tea or a meal at the on-site Verdi Restaurant are also available. Because of its royal connections, Royal Albert Hall is a frequent inclusion on royal-themed sightseeing tours of London, as are other royal attractions such as Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and Kensington Palace.

The Proms at the Royal Albert Hall

Every year the Royal Albert Hall plays host to the BBC Proms, a wildly popular classical music festival that runs for around eight weeks every summer. You can book tickets for specific events in advance, or wait in line on the night to get one of 1,350 inexpensive standing-only tickets. These standing spots—or Promming places, as they are known—are part of the Proms tradition.
