Queen Elizabeth Hall is the second concert hall in the Southbank Centre complex (the other, larger one, is the Royal Festival Hall). It presents a range of musical productions including orchestras, quartets, choirs, dances and operas. It is a concrete, brutalist building which opened in 1967 and overlooks the river Thames. Its undercroft is popular with skateboarders and graffiti artists, adding to the lively atmosphere along the South Bank.
The venue has a main hall, seating 900, and two smaller performance spaces – the Purcell Room, seating 370, and The Front Room at the QEH. It is air conditioned and has a licensed café bar.
There is level access to the building and lifts to all facilities. The main auditorium has an infra-red sound amplification system for the hard of hearing and 5 spaces for wheelchair users. The Purcell Room also has wheelchair spaces and an infra-red system.
The nearest tube station is Waterloo. Parking can be found in the car parks at the Hayward Gallery or the National Theatre.
