The Royal Albert Hall was opened by Queen Victoria in March 1871 and named in honour of her late husband, Prince Albert. The most famous artistic establishment in London, it has room for 5,272 spectators.
While its breathtaking architecture and rich interiors make it an attraction in itself, the Royal Albert Hall owes a large part of its reputation to its fantastic programming. Host in the past to such legends as Richard Wagner, Arthur Rubinstein, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones, the Hall also welcomed General de Gaulle for his famous speech of 15 November 1941.
The Royal Albert Hall is still today the favourite place of the greatest artists, offering exceptional theatre shows like Cirque du Soleil or the English National Ballet, and is even converted into the most unusual of tennis courts for the Champions Tennis tournament.
