Welcome to the National Theatre

On the South Bank of the Thames, in London, the National Theatre presents up to 25 new shows a year on its stages. There are three theatres, a learning centre, theatre tours, restaurants, a riverside bar and a bookshop.

Our productions also play in the West End and on tour. We broadcast to cinemas worldwide through National Theatre Live, stream plays free to UK schools, and produce a wealth of digital content about theatre.
