Royal Albert Hall tickets available from  Ticketmaster.co.uk

Have a guided tour of the Royal Albert Hall and see inside one of world's most prestigious entertainment venues as it prepares for the evening's performance.

As you learn about its history, you will walk along the corridors and some of the best rooms, before getting taken inside a box for a fantastic view of the auditorium itself. You will also see the Queen's private suite, the Royal Retiring Room, and the standing gallery that runs around the top of the hall.

Craig has been on this tour himself, and quite enjoyed it. Have a read of the review on his London blog before you go, to get a feeling of what it's like. You might also like to read his review of a Proms concert. During the Proms season (mid-July to mid-September), we also maintain a special page of Proms concerts (when it's close to Proms season).

Note: There is a maximum of 20 people per tour, and under-7s are not recommended. Under-5s are not allowed during Proms season.
