About National Theatre Backstage Tours

The magic of live theater is a power to behold, as is the creativity that goes on behind the scenes in order to bring that magic to the stage. The National Theatre in London is one of the world’s busiest entertainment facilities, producing an average of 20 new productions every year. These fully guided behind-the-scenes tours take guests backstage for an in-depth look at its incredibly busy daily operation. No two tours are ever exactly the same, as the rhythm of production is in a constant state of flux—from rehearsals to set building to costume design. These tours are one of London’s most popular activities, and are suitable for visitors of all ages.
