About: The Royal Albert Hall was first opened in 1871 and has remained central to London's culture ever since. The hall was built for the advancement of science and the Arts and was named after the late Prince Albert- who had died ten years before the halls completion. The building was funded by private individuals and help from the Crown.

The architect in charge of the project was Francis Fowke. The annual Proms season has been held here since 1941. The building is constructed from red brick and terracotta, and was designed around the amphitheatres that the prince had seen on his visits to Europe. A frieze that represents the arts and sciences circles the building. The roof of the Albert hall is made of an iron and glass dome, and offers excellent acoustics.

To date the Albert Hall is used for a variety of functions including concerts, fashion shows and corporate events. Since it first opened more than 150, 000 performances have taken place at the Royal Albert Hall. Tickets for the promenade seasons are difficult to get and must be bought in advance. The Royal Albert Hall is easily accessed via Knightsbridge or Kensington Underground Stations.
