While there are a variety of seating options on offer, it can be hard for event goers to choose the perfect spot. From the Gallery to floor seating, all come with their own different view.

However, those stuck on where they should sit don’t need to worry. Some past visitors have shared their experiences sitting in different spots around the venue. Their reviews may help you in choosing what best suits you.

Where are the best seats at London’s Royal Albert Hall, according to reviewers?

According to past guests on, the Rausing Circle seems to be the place to be. In particular, the level three blocks T and Q appear to be favoured spots by former attendees of the venue, as both received five out of five stars from reviewers. Block U of the Rausing Circle received similar praise, having also been awarded 4.5 stars.

Both blocks T and U offer a central view of the hall’s stage. Block Q is closer to the performance space. Alternatively, if Blocks T, U and Q are not available, P, X and Y could be good alternatives as while P, is the block beside Q, X and Y are opposite.

Those wanting to be closer to the action may prefer the ground-floor seating. Both blocks G and O are right next to the concert hall’s stage, and therefore it’s probably no surprise they have also been rated highly by past attendees.
