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.
