Royal Festival Hall

Since opening its door in 1951, the Royal Festival Hall has served as Southbank Centre’s capital for top-notch entertainment, attracting visitors from all over the world to hear London’s very best orchestras, operas, and classical musicians. The Royal Festival Hall regularly hosts such world-renowned musical assemblages as the Philharmonia Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta. Along with its grandiose auditorium, spacious foyers, and lavish architecture, the Royal Festival Hall is also equipped with modern facilities that make this centre for the arts a favoured location for year-round prestigious events such as the Ether and Meltdown.

  • Dine at the Skylon restaurant on the third floor of the Royal Festival Hall and enjoy astounding views of the River Thames and London skyline.
  • Visit the Saison Poetry Library, which features England’s most comprehensive collection of poetry composed in London since 1912.
  • Party at the Clore Ballroom, the largest ballroom in England that regularly hosts spectacular shows.

The Southbank Centre, where the Royal Festival Hall is located, lies along Belvedere Road in the South Bank suburb of London. The Royal Festival Hall is a short walk from the London Underground Waterloo Station, for those visitors travelling by Bakerloo, Northern, Jubilee, or City lines. This stunning English attraction is also within very close walking distance to the Embankment Station, for those travelling via the Circle or District lines. Additional British Rail Stations nearby include Waterloo, Waterloo East, and Charing Cross. Buses to the Southbank Centre are available from York Road, Stamford Street, and Beldevere Road.
