The Hall welcomes millions of people every year, including Royal visitors and foreign Heads of State, and the security of every single visitor to the Hall is of the utmost importance to us.

We have an excellent relationship with the Metropolitan Police and security services to ensure our procedures are up to date to ensure all our guests have a safe and happy time.

Security and your safety are paramount for us, so please be patient when coming into the building.

What security measures are in place?

Not all of our measures will be visible to the public, but one thing you will notice on your visit will be bag searchers operating at all doors. To assist with these arrangements we ask that you please avoid bringing large bags to the Hall and try to arrive a little earlier than usual to allow time for these searches.

All our staff members have been briefed to keep an eye out for suspicious behaviour, and attend regular security training and briefings to ensure they are up-to-date with the latest threat information and security practices.

Please cooperate fully with our staff who are these to keep us all safe and sound, and if you see anything suspicious or that doesn’t look right on your visit then please inform one of our stewards as soon as possible.

Extra security at certain events

Some events will have even tighter airport-style security. Special information for these events will be sent to ticket bookers in advance.

What you can do

You can help keep the event safe by being vigilant for anyone or anything that looks out of place or suspicious by reporting it to us immediately. If you have questions or concerns, or you see anything usual or suspicious, please do speak to any of our staff who are happy to help.

Driving to the Hall?

Unfortunately this area has been targeted by thieves and there have been vehicular break-ins. We encourage anyone driving to the Hall to leave nothing of value in your cars.

COVID-19

Whilst the building is closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we still have 24-hour security and surveillance measures in place.
