Royal Albert Hall
The Ampersand is well placed for a visit to the Albert Hall. The iconic circular hall, built to fulfill the vision of Prince Albert in 1871, showcases an ever-changing programme of events and exhibitions, many of them music-led. The Summer proms - an eight-week series of classical music concerts - are particularly popular.
Musical Hall of Fame
Internationally-acclaimed orchestras and artists from the worlds of classical music, jazz and other genres draw enthusiastic crowds to this unique auditorium. Secret History tours are also a great way to discover more about London’s past. The Royal Albert Hall is a five-minute walk from The Ampersand Hotel. Box Office open daily from 9am to 9pm.
What’s on at the Royal Albert Hall?
The Royal Albert Hall has a huge variety of performances — there’s something happening almost every evening. Shows we are particularly excited by include:
The BBC Proms, 19 July – 14 September 2019
Each year the BBC Proms host two months of concerts, aiming to bring the finest classical music to the city of London. Shows include contemporary world premiere, family concerts and classical favourites, as well as performances from leading musicians, singers, orchestra and soloists from across the world. The eight weeks of concerts culminate in the famous Last Night of The Proms, performed at the Royal Albert Hall – less than a mile from our front door.
