Royal Albert Hall, London: 47 reviews and 78 photos


Royal Albert Hall was built between 1867 and 1871 in memory of Prince Albert who was consort to Queen and faces the Albert Memorial. The original idea for the hall would have accommodated 30,000 people but money limitations caused the hall to be reduced to seat just over 5,000.

The hall is oval in shape with a iron and glass domed roof. Today the Royal Albert Hall is used for rallies and concerts, including the well-known Promenade Concerts (the Proms), which first took place there in 1941.
