Description of Royal Albert Hall

Royal Albert Hall is a great building dedicated to the promotion of Art and Science in South Kensington, London SW7.

Designed by Captain Fowke & General Scott.

The Hall is a Grade I Listed building and has been in continuous use since it was opened in March 1871.

The building was a key part of Prince Albert's vision for the South Kensington estate, which was to be developed on land purchased with the profits of the Great Exhibition of 1851.

From the outset the Hall was intended to be a versatile building used not only concerts but for exhibitions of art and of manufactured goods, and for scientific conferences and demonstrations.[1]

The frieze on the building is the 'Triumph of Arts and Letters' and was designed by Armitage, Pickersgill, Marks and Poynter.[2]
