How about a guided tour around the Royal Albert Hall? It's one of world's most prestigious entertainment venues, with history dating all the way back to Queen Victoria, but most people only see it during a performance.

On this tour you'll learn about its history as you walk around the corridors. You'll also see inside some of the rooms where you're not usually allowed to go, like the Queen's Private Suite and the Royal Retiring Room. After that you'll enter the auditorium itself, and enjoy a birds' eye view from the standing gallery that runs around the top (if you've never been up there, then you're in for a treat).

Craig has tried this himself, and quite enjoyed it. Read his review of the Royal Albert Hall tour on his blog before you go, so you can get an idea what it's like. Feel free to ask him some questions. You might also like to read about the time he saw a Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

Check out our guide to concerts at the Royal Albert Hall as well. During the Proms season we maintain a Proms concerts page as well (mid-July to mid-September only).
