Royal Albert Hall :: Shared Description

The Royal Albert Hall is an arts venue situated in the Knightsbridge area of the City of Westminster, London, best known for holding the annual summer Proms concerts since 1941. It was opened in 1871 by Queen Victoria.

The hall, a Grade I listed building, is an ellipse in plan, with major and minor axes of 83 m (272 feet) and 72 m (238 ft). The great glass and wrought-iron dome roofing the hall is 41 m (135 ft) high. It was originally designed with a capacity for 8,000 people and has accommodated as many as 9,000 (although modern safety restrictions mean that the maximum permitted capacity is now 5,544 including standing in the Gallery).
