What’s On in September '12

The Secret History Tour

Uncover the alternative history of the Royal Albert Hall on the Secret History tour. Learn the connection between the Hall and the Suffragettes, hear backstage stories and gossip, and find out which singer was so overawed by his first view of the venue that he decided to go horse-riding instead of turning up for his concert. From ghost hunters to gangsters, swindlers and charlatans, discover the unexpected story of London’s most iconic concert venue.

The Royal Albert Hall Grand Tour

Take a Grand Tour of the Royal Albert Hall and experience the excitement inside one of the most famous entertainment venues in the world as it prepares for the evening's performance. Our engaging guides will take you on a journey through this iconic building, bringing to life its fascinating history and sharing some of its secrets. This is a one-hour tour covering all Front of House areas including the stunning auditorium, the Gallery and the Queen's private suites, the Royal Retiring Room.
