This tour is a shared experience. The maximum is 15 people per booking and up to 20 people per tour group.Your tour ticket includes a discount on food and drinks.


Take the Secret History 1-hour walking tour at 1pm to get a unique insight into the alternative story of the Hall. Opened in 1871, the Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s most iconic buildings.

Your knowledgeable and informative guides have their own story to tell and will take you on a fascinating journey around this Grade I-listed building. You’ll see the stunning auditorium where the world’s stars have performed, the loading bay beneath the building, the breathtaking view from the gallery, along with areas that are not usually open to the public.

Because the Secret History tour uncovers the unexpected history of the Hall, it is recommended to visitors who are already familiar with the Hall, its rich history and legendary performances. First-time visitors are recommended to take the Grand Tour.

The tour ends at 2pm.
