The Royal, Holborn, whose full title was the New Royal Musical Hall, was sited on London's High Holborn between 1887 and 1892, when its name was changed to The Royal Holborn Theatre of Varieties.

Prior to 1887, other music halls had existed at this location, and following the demolition of the Theatre of Varieties, the Holborn Empire was built on the same site; this was demolished in 1960.
