Royal Albert Hall Capacity

The Royal Albert Hall London has a capacity of 5544 seats.Use our interactive seating plan to view 1023 seat reviews and 993 photos of views from seat.

The Royal Albert Hall has a vast, coliseum-style auditorium with five levels of seating. The seating layout can be adapted depending on the event, with some in-the-round performances adding "ringside" seating close to the stage. Traditional concerts keep the performance space to the large stage at the Southern end of the hall. For the standard layout, the total possible capacity is 5,272. The auditorium features many boxes and loges in the middle tiers and the topmost Gallery level features unreserved seating and standing space. Approximately 1,270 seats at the hall are privately owned. While the open design of the auditorium means views are very clear from all angles, the sheer size means that opera glasses are recommended for seats in the highest levels, furthest from the stage.

Good value seats

Sitting in Stalls seats closer to the stage is a very good value option. Despite being side-on, the seats themselves can be swivelled slightly to achieve a more comfortable angle. Similarly, many side-facing seats in the Rausing Circle are marked restricted view (and are cheaper for this reason) but offer decent overhead views of the stage.

Premium seats

Sitting in a Box seat will give you an unbeatable Royal Albert Hall experience. The more central Boxes have an incredible view of the entire auditorium, and great acoustics to enjoy a live orchestra. The front few rows of the Arena are also premium, offering an intimate view of performances.
