National Theatre, London


At the National Theatre there are three theatres:

Touch Tours

The National Theatre aims to offer a touch tour for every audio-described production, usually before an audio-described matinee. It’s a chance to visit the set, feel the props, and enhance your enjoyment of the show. The tour is free and lasts about half an hour. Please let them know if you’re attending the tour on your own and they will arrange for a member of staff to accompany you. Guide dogs are also welcome on set, subject to an advance assessment to ensure a safe environment. Alternatively, they can arrange for your guide dog to be looked after. If you’d like to join a tour, please make a reservation in advance by phoning 020 7452 3000.

Season Brochures

Large print and audio Season Brochures are available on the National Theatre website. Braille versions can be requested via email.
