My husband and I have attended many different events at this phenomenal venue - classical music, opera, ballet, modern music. Never ever disappointed by venue or quality of the event. We would, though, recommend eating beforehand outside of the RAH.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Loggia boxes can be restricted view. Great for music but chancy for a film.

If you ever have a question like this - just Google. The show runs for 2 hours and 10 minutes so add this onto whatever show you're seeing - matinee or evening performance. Hope this helps!
