Audience Experience

Audience Experience

Visiting the National Theatre building should be a memorable and enjoyable experience.

NT Future has helped us make it a more welcoming, more comfortable place for regular members of our audience, as well as for first-time visitors.

Although the National Theatre is widely recognised as a London landmark, it’s easy to pass by without ever knowing just what a friendly and special place it is inside.

Now the busy riverside walkway passes just outside our front door, we have new opportunities to invite more than 12 million people every year to come in and find out how much they’re missing.

To welcome everyone, we are making the most of our outdoor spaces and making it easier than ever to find your way inside.

For instance, right on the riverside there is a vibrant new café called Kitchen, and our craft beer pub The Understudy. These are the ideal starting point for exploring the building.

Once through the door, you’ll find more space, clearer signposting, better facilities, and more opportunities to relax and discover what’s happening.

We want you to enjoy our home – and to feel it’s your home too.
