See inside London's most famous music hall with over 140 years of history, and enjoy some traditional refreshment with this Royal Albert Hall Tour and Afternoon Tea for Two. There's a history of tea being taken at the Royal Albert Hall, with the first tea party taking place just over 100 years ago. You can continue that tradition at the Hall's curved Verdi restaurant, where you'll be able to look out over the Royal College of Music while indulging in a feast of sweet and savoury treats. You'll each get to enjoy a selection of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, desserts (including the likes of salted caramel and dark chocolate slice, Classic baked lemon tart, mango, passion fruit and Jivara 'clairs and more) and a pot of refreshing tea. Along with your Afternoon Tea you'll also be able to take a tour of one of the most famous venues in the world as it prepares for the next amazing performance. With a friend by your side you'll go on a journey from the front of the Hall through to the spectacular auditorium, including the view from the Gallery as well as an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Royal Retiring Room.
