Opened in 1871, the Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s most iconic buildings. Over the past 147 years, it has hosted everyone from Adele to Arctic Monkeys, BBC Proms to Beyoncé, Cirque du Soleil to Churchill, Einstein to Elgar (we could go on).

Take a one-hour Royal Albert Hall Tour, led by one of our expert guides, to discover our star-studded history of performance, see the breathtaking auditorium where the world’s stars have performed, and take a peek at some of the royal areas of the Hall – you might even be lucky enough to hear an artist in soundcheck!

Once your tour has finished, you’ll make your way to our Verdi restaurant, where you’ll be seated before enjoying your musically-themed afternoon tea.

The menu features classic finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and a whimsical mix of musically-inspired cakes as a nod to the legendary performances that take place on our stage.

The star of the show is the tea itself; with 13 blends on offer, you are sure to find a flavour that hits all the right notes.

This experience lasts around 2.5 hours. We recommend doing the tour before tea, but you are welcome to select time slots according to your preferences:
