Excited for the Proms? Before the concert, discover a new perspective of the Royal Albert Hall on our Classical Tour.
Conducted by our expert guides, this tour takes you around the many nooks and crannies of the hall, taking in our world-famous organ, the Hall’s acoustic ‘mushrooms’ and the sweeping promenade of our Gallery. You’ll discover the history of classical music in the hall – a favourite venue for composers, conductors, performers and audiences alike – and hear some our favourite (and often, absurd) stories from the world’s largest classical music festival, the BBC Proms.
You might even be lucky enough to hear the orchestra in sound check…
The Royal Albert Hall is a working building so the content of the tours may vary and due to events some areas may occasionally be closed.
