While we continue preparations for the full reopening of the National Theatre building, we are only admitting ticket-holders at this time.
Our foyers open from 50 minutes before performances. On days when there are matinees, the foyers are closed between performances to allow for cleaning.
Our carpark remains open and audiences can enjoy The Understudy bar and KERB street food market before the show.
National Theatre Car Park
Our Car Park is open Mondays to Fridays from 6am to midnight, and Saturdays and Sundays 7am to midnight.
The lifts from the Car Park to the main foyer for the Olivier theatre will open 1 hour before the start of the show (6.15pm for 7.15pm evening performances and 12.15pm for 1.15pm performances).
Disabled people, including those attending the Dorfman theatre, should contact our Access line 020 7452 3961 to confirm blue badge parking arrangements.
Please note that the main National Theatre foyers are currently closed and there is no step-free access from the car park.
You can chat to our Box Office team between 11am-6pm Monday to Saturday using the green chat button on the bottom of the page, or email [email protected]
