|The Festival Hall|
Belvedere Road, SE1
Nearest Tube: Waterloo
Part of the South Bank Arts Centre, this building is the original building that hosted the Festival of Britain in 1951. Since then it has become the home of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and is most closely associated with music.
It contains three separate venues and plays host to a wide variety of musical styles - from classical and opera to jazz and blues there is something for everyone. So it really is a must for music lovers everywhere.
The main hall tends to be host to the classical concerts, whilst the Queen Elizabeth Hall is where operas and chamber music is performed. And the Purcell Room is the regular venue for smaller recitals.
Free recitals are held most evenings in the main entrance foyer. A music shop, record store, bookshop and a café for refreshments are all available. If you visit this hall, remember to take some time to admire the lovely views across the river.
