A lovely tour. I was not expecting to see so much. Thankyou.

The tour of the Royal Albert Hall was excellent. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The building was impressive and full of history. One note--if you have a tour while rehearsals are happening, you cannot take photographs inside the main concert hall. As a result, you might want to book earlier in the day as you would may be less likely to run into rehearsals during that time.

It was a small group, and the guide was very knowledgeable, not just about the Hall but about Prince Albert whose idea the Hall was originally.

Interesting tour detailing some of the acts who have played there and events that take place. We would have appreciated a bit more information on the technical side of the stage set up and being able to get closer to the stage would have been good too.

The guided tour was excellent value for the amount paid. The guide was very informative re the history of the venue. One of the reasons for my visit was to ascertain which seats provided a good view of the stage. Besides being shown some of the seating close up, I also sat in some of them. All in all, a worthwhile visit.
To be recommended.

Until the day I booked tickets I wasn’t aware that it was open to the public. Our guide was Millie, a very interesting tour guide, welcoming and fun.
