Many of London’s theatres are accessed from below or above street level. If you need to avoid steps, it is advisable to contact the theatre directly by telephone or email as they will be able to advise you on which seats are most easily accessed. Many have specially adapted wheelchair spaces.

Theatres may be able to provide additional facilities for customers with a hearing or visual impairment and some shows may also offer specific, adapted performances. It’s best to check with the venue directly via one of the following methods:

If you are visiting other London venues, Society of London Theatre also offers useful information for visitors with a disability or specific access need.

Nearest Tube: South Kensington

Buses: The nearest bus stops are serviced by numbers 9, 23, 52, 360, 452. These can be crowded as shows empty. It’s easier to head for the tube (the nearest is South Kensingon which is approximately 15 minutes walk). Or, if you can afford it, treat yourself to a hotel stay nearby.

Despite being in central London, the Royal Albert Hall is oddly located in terms of proximity to good hotels or nightlife. Please bear in mind that our recommended hotels are between 10-22 minutes walk from the venue. If you are vacationing in London, it may be better to choose a hotel in the main theatre district and travel here by taxi, although the area does give good access to Hyde Park and some lovely museums.

Luxury: The Egerton House Hotel, 17-19 Egerton Terrace, London, SW3 2BX (15 minutes walk from the Royal Albert Hall but well worth the extra few minutes and extra £s). Luxury in a wonderful location, near several major museums.

Mid: 54 Queen’s Gate Hotel, 54 Queen’s Gate, London SW7 5JW (10 minutes walk – it’s difficult to find a hotel with good reviews any closer, which is reflected in higher prices than you might expect for a 4*).

Budget: Premier Inn London Kensington, 11 Knaresborough Place, London SW5 0TJ (A 22 minutes walk from the Royal Albert Hall but the extra minutes will save you a small fortune).
