Tourist Attraction in London: Royal College of Music
The Royal College of Music is a music school in Kensington (London). Founded in 1882 by the Prince of Wales (the future Edward VII) instead of the National Training School for Music, the school opened the following year under the direction of George Grove. The College moved to its current location in 1894, in the cultural district of Albertopolis, at Imperial College and in front of the Royal Albert Hall. The school teaches all aspects of classical music from the beginning up to the doctorate and includes a vast museum of music instruments open to the public.
