The National Theatre is one of the UK’s foremost venues for contemporary and classic theatre, scene of some the greatest performances of all time from some of world’s most famous actors and actresses.
With London Pass you can indulge your theatrical tastes and see what goes on behind the scenes with Royal National Theatre Backstage Tours – free to pass holders.
Situated on the South Bank close to Royal Festival Hall and the Hayward Gallery, National Theatre tours run several times a day and last about 75 minutes. Advance booking is recommended as theatre tour times vary according to rehearsals and performances.
London theatre tours like this one are an incredible way to experience a hidden side of the capital and get off the tried-and-tested tourist sightseeing trail. On the Royal National Theatre Backstage Tours you will be led by a well-informed and enthusiastic guide who will reveal the secrets and stories of the three auditoriums, which together stage 18 shows every year.
All National Theatre tours end with a visit backstage to see the theatre at work, including on-site scenic workshops.

Full List Of Attractions Included
"I would absolutely recommend buying the London Pass if you have 3 or more days to spend exploring London. Buy it ahead of time, online and research what is available and decide what attractions you might be interested in. A top 10 sort of thing, and then any others that might be of interest. It gives you the freedom to visit many popular sites without the hassle of standing in long lines for tickets. I also liked that I wasn't spending all kinds of money every day on attractions and money did not enter into my decisions on what I wanted to do since my admissions where already paid for. I very much enjoyed my visit in London and I think having the London Pass allowed me to see more than I would have, had I not had it. Thank you!!"
