Our family was in London for Christmas and we went to one of the Christmas concerts that are an annual event at the Royal Albert Hall. The concert itself was outstanding. The Hall is a very impressive building. But I have two words of advice:...More

Big, round structure using lots of bricks of different colours. My friends the outside is great beside the Albert Memorial but to get the best of this book yourselves into a concert within these fine walls. Acoustics are awesome and whether your into Cream or...More

I love attending concerts at The Royal Albert Hall. It’s a beautiful venue and the programs are exceptional. This time I bought a cheaper seat ticket for one of the BBC Proms with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: The Sound of an Orchestra with conductor Joshua...More

Steeped in history and perhaps the best venue for all types of music in London. Seating design allows patrons a good view and sound experience wherever they are seated.

I passed in front of it when I was coming from the airport. Found it so beautiful that I went and visited it a few days later.

This is a lovely venue to see a concert, whether classical music or modern band. Only downside is the price of drinks, they are extortionately expensive in my opinion.

Surely one of the greatest music venues in London. It may be my favourite especially after some fantastic customer service. Alt-J gig sounded great but the seats we had were at the side of the stage and we could only see the drummer. When I...More

After attending a musical spectacular recently at Royal Albert hall, I wanted to share how amazing the auditorium is! There are no words that describe this sight and sound to experience yourself. The room is obviously circular, on several tiers. Interior design is traditionally grand,...More

Visit here for this service. It was very very busy and everything was great. The arena was wonderful,the bar area was busy but plenty of staff were there to serve everyone.

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

Sorry cannot address the specific seats here. From my experience of multiple visits the views are always fantastic. Have never been to Cirque but I would guess lower down is best to be able to enjoy the full experience... More
