Olivier Theatre, National
(10mins) Follow signs for exits to the South Bank. This should lead you to an underground pedestrian passage called ‘Sutton Walk’ that emerges at the South Bank. Turn right and walk along the river Thames until you see the National Theat
The Olivier stage of the National Theatre has a more unusual layout than other venues in town with two levels arcing in a semi-circle around the stage with the Stalls nearest the stage and the circle above it. The Stalls feature rows stretching from A to R in this formation, with the rows featuring a maximum of 59 seats across. The Circle features rows A to G with a maximum of 83 seats across. This makes more a total of 1,160 seats on 2 levels.
Within the National Theatre the Box Office for the Olivier is on level 2 from the main entrance. From here the Stalls are level with the Box Office but 10 steps must be traversed to get to sections raised from this level. A lift grants patrons with access to the Circle, which goes to row G, where steps can be utilised to get to other rows.
