About National Theatre Tours

Take a guided tour of the National Theatre and discover the secrets of one of the most iconic buildings on the South Bank.

Led by one of our expert guides, our tour takes you on a journey behind the scenes to see what’s being made in our on-site carpentry, props and scenic painting workshops, and discover how we create our world-class productions. The tour guide will explain the different job roles within the theatre as well as giving students the chance to explore the design and unique features of this renowned building, including our auditoriums.

To ensure the students get the most out of their visit all our tours can be tailored to focus on what the class is studying at the time of the visit.

“We wanted to write to let you know how informative and inspiring the boys found the NT Tour this morning. Our Tour Guide, George, was incredibly knowledgeable and we felt privileged to hear all his knowledge about the NT, and theatre in general – we would very much like you to pass this feedback on to George and to the Manager of the National Theatre Tours….”
