Join engaging guides on a journey through time as they bring the Royal Albert Hall’s 139-year history to life and share some of the secrets of this fascinating venue.
The Royal Albert Hall was built to fulfil the vision of Prince Albert (Queen Victoria’s consort) of a ‘Central Hall’ that would be used to promote understanding and appreciation of the Arts and Sciences and would stand at the heart of the South Kensington estate, surrounded by museums and places of learning.
As part of their Close Encounters Festival, which focuses on all things astronomical and extra terrestrial, these tours investigate how Victorians helped shape the way we see the universe today.
Tours last 30 minutes and cover the Front of House areas of the building.
