Best Seats In The House

16.12.21

Christmas this year is going to be extra special in the heart of London, with celebrations taking place across the city. Prime central London is already in a celebratory mood, as this year the Royal Albert Hall turns 150-years-old. The iconic and treasured concert hall, built to memorialise Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert, has stood guard on the periphery of Hyde Park since its opening in 1871, providing a place of worship to the gods of music and the arts.

Harrods Estates has the unique undertaking of holding the keys to one of the most sought-after spaces in London; a privately owned Royal Albert Hall box. These luxurious situations come on the market very rarely and have historically been snapped up by the lucky few in the know, and passed down through generations, but now, the chance to own your bit of history is anyone’s.

This Christmas, what could be better than your very own seat in the house that saw Verdi conduct his Requiem Mass in person, Pavarotti shake the rafters with his interpretation of Puccini’s Nessun Dorma and even witness world-famous Muhammed Ali defeat his rival Joe Bugner in their famous 1974 boxing bout.

At this moment in time, there is just one box available for purchase, a 12-seater Grand Tier box, the ultimate piece of cultural real estate. This piece of antiquity has 848 years left on its lease, that’s approximately 339,200 performances. Such excellence in location ensures the best views in the house, as well easy access to the bars and restaurants, ensuring you can entertain your guests in sophisticated luxury.

The unique layout of the Royal Albert Hall means that each seat, be it high or low in the auditorium, offers exceptional views of the main stage. What’s more, as an owner of a box in the Hall, you automatically become a member of the Corporation of the Hall of Arts and Science, thus investing in the future of the cultural significance of the Grade I listed venue.

In addition to the incomparable Grand Tier box, Harrods Estates are also marketing a number of stall seats, with prices starting from £280,000 for a pair. Giving the gift of music and performance this Christmas, at a keystone in the home of British culture, is the ultimate Christmas present for your nearest and dearest.

Shaun Drummond, Residential Director at Harrods Estates commented: “Having seen a very slow start to the year coming out of lockdown, we anticipated a busy summer with travel restrictions finally lifted and the arrival of the fully vaccinated, but sadly this wasn’t to be.  In past two months, however, with the easing of quarantine requirements, we have seen clients start to arrive who are eager to focus on the future beyond the pandemic - it now looks like we’re going to have a busy Christmas.

“2021 has certainly been a memorable year, with the easing of restrictions bringing vitality back to the heart of London. The Royal Albert Hall is at the heart of what makes London’s cultural scene so great, and we are honoured to be in the position to help secure its future. At Harrods Estates, we’re looking forward to an influx of interest over the festive period.”
