Verdi - Italian Kitchen


Don’t go hungry! There are restaurants, cafés and bars available throughout the building. The Café Bar and Verdi – Italian Kitchen are open throughout the day and offer children’s options. We are happy to heat up baby milk in the Café Bar during opening hours – please speak to a member of café staff who can help. High chairs are available.

Verdi, our child-friendly Italian restaurant, is open before and after each show and has food options for all the family. The children’s menu includes delicious pasta, with tomato or bolognaise sauce, and pizzas in the shape of bunnies, plus colouring kits and ice-cream for afters.

Families at the Royal Albert Hall


Our venue is fully accessible for buggies, offering level or ramped access at Doors 1, 3, 8, 9 and 12. Lifts for other levels are available at Doors 1 and 8. Please ask a steward on arrival where to park your buggy. Space might be limited so please be prepared to fold it and always ensure that any valuables stay with you at all times, as buggies are left at your own risk.

Baby changing facilities are available in our accessible toilets at Doors 4, 8 and 12 on the Ground Floor, near Door 4 on the Grand Tier (level 1) and Door 8 on the Rausing Circle level (level 3). Find facilities on our interactive map.
