  •  Guest – “Which exit do I take to get to the royal albert hall from south kensington station on Sunday 19th March. Thank you.”
  • Admin – “Come out of the Thurloe street exit and walk up exhibition road. The royal albert hall will be on the left before you reach the park. Don't walk all the way up to the park, though. If you want the best view of it as you approach (with the steps and statues in front of you), then turn left down prince consort road. You want to get the best view of it if it's your first-ever visit”
  •  Guest – “Thank you very much for the information on getting to the royal albert hall.”
