  • The NT is part of a complex of buildings on the South Bank of the Thames. It is a great place to spend time in comfort with a coffee and cake, listening to free live music, especially jazz. Nice cafe and shop, some restaurants in case you want a full meal. Lots of paid parking under cover. Very accessible. Great bookstall on the embankment just outside the National Film Theatre.
  • Amazing theatre! I went to see Anthony and Cleopatra and thought the performance was outstanding. I used the parking garage easily and managed to get my parking validated so I didn’t have to pay any extra. The staff were friendly and helpful to find my seat. I would definable come here again!
