Take a Tour of the Royal Albert Hall and dine in style at one of the venue’s flagship eateries with a three-course lunch with wine for two in the Hall's stunning Verdi restaurant.
The tour offers you the chance to take an extensive journey through the front of house areas as it prepares for the next amazing performance. Walk the Hall’s stunning auditorium, experience the breathtaking view from the Gallery and also enjoy exclusive access to the Royal Retiring Room. Along the way, you’ll learn the heritage and history of how the Hall transitioned from Victorian landmark to Global icon.
The stylish new Verdi restaurant serves up hearty platefuls of authentic Italian-inspired dining in a casual setting. Ideal for a spot of lunch with its relaxed atmosphere and warm service, you and your dining partner will be able to tuck into three scrumptious courses. Choose from the likes of stone baked pizzas, pasta dishes, an array of starters and classic Italian desserts. You’ll be able to wash this down in style with a glass of wine each or soft drink alternative.
Upon arrival at the Royal Albert Hall, you and your guest will enter through Door 12, exchange your voucher for your tickets at the Box Office and wait at the Tours meeting point to take your pre-booked tour. Once the tour is ready to leave, you’ll begin your journey through this amazing Grade I Listed building, moving through the auditorium, gallery, Royal Retiring Room and all the storied corridors in-between, learning about the Hall’s rich history.
After the tour, you’ll make your way up to the first floor to take your seats in the Verdi restaurant, where you’ll enjoy three delicious courses of Italian-inspired cuisine paired with a glass of wine or soft drink alternative.

Very nice staff
The tour of the Royal Albert Hall was so interesting, & our tour guide was so entertaining & knowledgable. The meal at the Verdi restaurant afterwards was truly delicious, & the service excellent.
This was a birthday gift to me from a friend, & really made the occasion very special. Thank you to all concerned!
The tour lasted around 45mins and we were taken to the different types of boxes, into the queens room and then up to the standing balcony, luckily the BBC proms were in rehearsal. The 3 course meal in Verdi was delicious and great value.
