Queen Elizabeth Hall Reviews
We went to see facnating Aida and as another reported said not all the words could be heard. Such a shame as it was a good show. more »
Sound was just great, very comfy relaxed venue The bar was very strange as they only sold lager and pale ales - no British bitter like Fullers London Pride or Youngs or Greene King Abbot .... and... more »
Likeable spot. I've been to attend one of the events of international women day, the rapper Lady Sanity. It was in the hall foyer. Good sound. First time in Queen Elizabeth, I've been before in South Bank Centre. Admirable place, central, next to Tames, with terrace and outside space for food market.
Lovely Venue, friendly staff, lots of things to do, see, participate. Great for families, everyone. There's lots of cafes, restaurants, bars, etc . Spoilt for choice and not overly expensive! Attended a free concert! Very good, definitely worth a day out/ visit.
