The Royal Albert Hall is beautiful on the outside and amazing on the inside. Victorian Arhitecture at its best. If you are lucky enough to see a concert there the accoustics will blow you away.

I’ve been at the RAH both as a performer & as an listener. The acoustic are extremely beautiful no matter where you sit. Building itself is beautiful.

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

I would advise to arrive early as can enjoy the building, 2 hours before is good when the bars open (not much seating though) but could do 45 minutes before at the latest.
