About Royal Albert Hall

Impressive venue for Gala concerts and National celebrations. The Albert Hall was built in Kensington Gardens to a design by General H. Scott in 1871. It was erected in memory of Prince Albert, Royal Consort of Queen Victoria, the Prince died in 1861.

The hall was built on a grand scale, it is in the form of a huge oval arena, surrounded by tier upon tier of boxes and galleries, completed by a roof of metal surrounding a glass dome. A terracotta frieze encircles the exterior immediately below the dome, this depicts man's progress in science and the art's throughout the centuries.

The Royal Albert Hall is held in special affection by the nation, it is the home of the traditional "Last Night of the Proms" and the setting for the celebrations held by the British Legion on the Saturday before the laying of the traditional Poppy Wreaths at the Cenotaph. This ceremony is led by the Queen, who together with other members of her family attends the British Legion concert at the Albert Hall. The hall's first ever concert was held on the 29th of March 1871, following the opening ceremony when the then Prince of Wales made a speech for his mother Queen Victoria, the Queen had declared herself to be too emotional to speak.

In recent years noted celebrations at this illustrious venue have included a concert for the 50th birthday of Andrew Lloyd-Webber featuring music from his many successful musicals.

Visitors can enjoy guided tours of the Royal Albert Hall when you can peak into parts of the building previously unseen, and in the hall's eaterie, the Cafe Consort there are regular free Friday lunch-time concerts between 12 noon and 1.30 p.m.
