Southbank Centre - Behind the Scenes Tour

Foyer Spaces

What does Royal Festival Hall have in common with an eggbox?

Who granted the venue's royal patronage? When was Eurovision hosted here?

Southbank Centre dates back to the Festival of Britain in 1951. One of the most popular cultural destinations in the country, we host thousands of performances and millions of visitors every year.

Our tours offer a unique insight into the history of the site and the people who have shaped it. Join us to follow in the footsteps of world-famous orchestras and artists.

Hear behind-the-scenes stories from our trained Tour Guides and gain exclusive access to areas usually reserved for performers and Southbank Centre staff.

Tours last approximately one hour.
