    I rarely give 5 stars to anything but the Royal Festival Halls deserves each one. Few other places in the UK nurture the arts and bring together people from all walks of life in the way this place does. I have seen free gigs, sat in the cafe with a good book, met friends in the communal areas, seen theatre, very lively dance groups.. It’s always so full of life.

    Your experience here will, of course, depend on the artists who are performing. So I’ll just comment on the building. Big 1950’s auditorium, good sound. Facilities below are showing their age. Silly doors everywhere cause congestion. Silly, tiny, toilets and too few of them – did people in the 1950’s not use public toilets ? Silly stairs everywhere, half landings, mezanines, slow and broken lifts – could be a nightmare for the less able. This place could do with a major refurb of its basic facilities to join the 21st century.

    Great event space, I saw Tim Berners Lee talk here and got fantastic seats at a really reasonable price. I’ve also knitted here as part of a group who make the most of all the free space in the foyers. Great place to get people together – also there is a balcony area with great views over the water (think it’s on the 3rd floor?).

    I saw the Philharmonic Orchestra play soundtracks from video games here! The whole evening was actually just bloody fantastic. The music was incredible, the venue was beautiful and it was a real pleasure to have been there. Plus they covered some of my personal favourites such as final fantasy, zelda and dead space 😀

    This is one of my favourite places in London. Imagine a free space where you can relax on a sofa, have a coffee, study, or maybe playing cards on a table. Or having an indoor picnic. Or listening to the music. Or whatever. Imagine to go on the open terrace on the 5th floor and see the Thames in whatever floor you are due to the big windows facing it. This is a place of cultural interest and enjoyable for everyone. Nice way to relax on a Sunday, getting some energy before starting working again on Monday.
