Opened in 1871, the Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s most iconic buildings. Join our knowledgeable and friendly tour guides on a journey through the history of classical music at the Royal Albert Hall – the home of the largest classical music festival in the world, the BBC Promenade concerts, and much more music.
As a favourite venue for composers, conductors, performers and audiences alike, classical music has always been central to the Royal Albert Hall. Verdi insisted on the Hall as the venue for the British premiere of his Requiem – and conducted it himself. Wagner too loved the place, happily sitting in an armchair facing the audience at a festival of his works. Sir Adrian Boult even said: ‘If you want to start a career as a conductor, then you start by hiring the Albert Hall.’
