The Rivoli Ballroom is one of the few remaining ballrooms in London. It became a ballroom in the late 1950's, and is now Grade 2-listed. It's a beautiful building, and one that Londoners should make a point of visiting at least once.

It's not easy to get to unless you happen to live in southeast London. Coming from Ealing required two tube rides and a bus. But it was worth it. The facade...more
