Opened in 1871, the Royal Albert Hall is the world’s most famous stage. It is also one of London’s most iconic and visited tourist attractions. Over the years, it has been the scene of over 150,000 performances; from Wagner to Sinatra, The Beatles to Beyonce, Muhammad Ali to Adele, and is home to the celebrated BBC Proms.

The atmosphere, the smell, the interior, the ushers- it does not get any more classy and British styled than this. No matter it'd be a rock concert or a promenade concert, this atmosphere almost makes you feel a bit royal. Love this place and come...More

Saw Il Volo here, and sat to the right of the stage. Didn't have a direct view of the performers, but it was ok. Once these three young men hit a cord together, it sang through the venue. Truly, I was astounded at how beautifully...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

After experiencing the guided tour of the Royal Albert Hall I would suggest that you would have a relatively good standing view. Just go along and enjoy yourselves.

Go to their website and find the "view from your seat" section. I tried to share the link here, but Trip Advisor doesn't allow it.
