The Royal Albert Hall is arguably London's most prestigious venue, and people visiting the capital can look forward to seeing a variety of productions and concerts there.
It was originally constructed in line with the vision of Prince Albert - Queen Victoria's beloved husband.
He wanted to create a 'Central Hall' that would promote understanding and appreciation of the Arts and Sciences, and stand at the heart of the South Kensington estate where it would be surrounded by museums and places of learning.
The hall has been in continuous use since its grand opening in March 1871, and is now a Grade I listed building.
As well as the concerts and flashy shows for which it is known, it also hosts educational events of which Prince Albert would no doubt be proud.
Upcoming productions at the hall include Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, who are playing their first UK shows for 13 years from Monday June 18th until Wednesday June 20th.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama will also be giving a public talk entitled Real Change Happens in the Heart on Tuesday June 19th at 14.00 BST.
