  • This is a tour that I would thoroughly recommend as you get to see parts of this outstanding hall that you may never get to experience. The guide was full of knowledge which certainly added to the enjoyment. You were never rushed and was able to take photographs

  • This was an excellent tour of the RHA. Unfortunatelt we could take no pictures within the hall as the Proms were rehearsing. We did thought get to sit in on two pieces which was very special. The tour was so good that I returned 3 days later for an opera performance. Well done to all involved.

  • This is a great tour for anyone interested in 19th century London History - the story of how the RAH came to be, the devotion of Victoria for Albert, and the current relationship between the RAH and Her Majesty is explored and explained. The Beatles album cover signed by all four Beatles was a highlight for me, as was climbing up to the very highest levels to see what was there. Our guide was expert and entertaining, looking out for all of us on the stairs and in the labyrinth. I loved it.

  • I took this tour because I've been watching Victoria on Masterpiece. Our guide Tony was very knowledgeable and so interesting. Great to hear about who performed at the hall and more about Victoria and her Prince Albert. Highly recommend!

  • Many special moments and brushes with music royalty!

  • So glad we did this. Tour guide was extraordinary. Made the place come alive. Be aware. You have to book a tour time. They fill up fast.

  • Excellent tour with a lot you wouldn't normally see. Particularly liked the Queens's staircase and waiting room, and watching a rehearsal.

  • Wonderful tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. We visited on a day where they were preparing for a concert so we were limited in our viewing of the concert hall itself. Enjoyed touring the queens's box. The history of the building is amazing. Certainly would recommend this tour.

  • The guide for the tour was very well informed, and we found the tour itself fascinating.
    To see the Albert Hall and hear its history was so interesting.

  • Very interesting tour. Guide was very knowledgeable
