Royal Opera House Tours

Learn more about the Covent Garden landmark

The Royal Opera House guided tours are back – offering visitors a chance to step into the stunning Covent Garden site, hear about its colourful history, and find out what it takes to stage a production in one of the world’s leading theatres.

The full offering includes three returning favourites: the classic ROH Tour, designed to give both an overview of the building and an insight into our state-of-the-art theatre technology; Velvet, Gilt and Glamour, focused on the delights of our historic auditorium; and Legends and Landmarks, celebrating the many famous faces and performances that have graced our stage.

It will also include, for the first time ever, our Pride of the ROH Tour, specially designed to recognise the rich contributions made by LGBTQ+ icons – from pioneering composers to talented choreographers across ROH’s celebrated history.

Children and young people are welcome on tours but must have their own ticket.  Please check the website for age guidance and information about content.
