Backstage Tours with view behind the scenes

    September 2012

    The National Theatre is changing - inside and outside, in our public spaces and behind the scenes, as part of an £80m redevelopment called NT Future.
    We have chosen to keep tours running whilst this exciting work is ongoing, but there may be some changes to the spaces that can be visited and programming these tours in advance is not possible. For further information please e-mail info@nationaltheatre.org.uk or call 020 7452 3400 to find out when tours are running.

    For further information on NT Future, please visit ntfuture.nationaltheatre.org.uk
