The Albert Hall is a very distinctive and beautiful building in London's Kensington borough, at the south western end of Hyde Park and directly opposite the Albert Memorial in the park.
Our first tactile picture shows the exterior of the Royal Albert Hall and provides more information about the building's architecture and history.
In 1963 The Beatles were at the start of their meteoric rise to fame and made their first appearance at the Hall at the BBC's Swinging Sound event.
