Wednesday we went to the Royal Albert Hall in London for a science lecture (Stephen Hawking). The hall is amazing. We were lucky enough to get tickets in the Loggia (the fancy boxes on the first level).
To quote the official website: "The Royal Albert Hall was built to fulfil the vision of Prince Albert (Queen Victoria's consort) of a 'Central Hall' that would be used to promote understanding and appreciation of the Arts and Sciences...."
We were early and took a picture before the crowds came.
The Loggia boxes were originally sold on 999-year leases when the Royal Albert Hall opened in 1871, to help finance its construction costs. About 1,200 of the venue's 5,500 seats are owned privately.
The seats were perfect. I'd love to see a play or musical from that spot!
American Friends/Family: Toilet is the preferred word. Restroom/Bathroom is not used because you don't "rest" or take a bath in the toilet. So, I'm not being rude when I use the term "toilet." Well, not really, really rude. LOL!
