The best seats in the house: Royal Albert Hall box goes on sale for £3million
You can now be the holder of your own Royal Albert Hall box - a mere two seats away from The Queen's royal box
If you’re an avid fan of theatre and music, then pay attention because the best views of the world's most prestigious concert hall stage could now be yours for a cool £3m. The seats for sale – a box in the Grand Tier at The Royal Albert Hall, just two seats from The Queen's Royal Box – are the definition of hot property, and listed through luxury property agents Harrods Estates.
Offering exceptional views of the Hall's 400 annual performances, the Grand Tier box features 12 seats in contrast to the 10 found in other boxes. The lease-held memberships come with additional privileges, including access to a variety of performances, and the chance to become a Member of the Corporation of the Hall of Arts and Sciences.
“Grand Tier Boxes at the Royal Albert Hall rarely come to the market. This is only the second in nearly a decade that we have instructed,” said Jake Irwin-Brown, sales negotiator at Harrods Estates.
Though available boxes are rare, last year Grand Tier seats on the western side of the auditorium went up for sale for £2.5million. At the time, Nicholas Shaw of Harrods Estates said it was the “most expensive box we have ever offered for sale.”
Since it was established in March 1871, The Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s most distinctive and treasured buildings, and has played host to some of the most globally iconic artists, sportsmen, musicians and dancers in the world, and events including The Proms, the BAFTA Film Awards, The Olivier Awards, Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, and Gregory Porter.
