Venue overview

The Lyttelton is the smaller space in the National Theatre and represents most West End theatres. A proscenium arch theatre, the venue typically hosts small, traditional plays, as well as revivals and new writing. The auditorium reflects the 1970’s design of the building and has a relatively modern interior, which allows for relatively comfortable seating throughout.

Seating in the venue is particularly good, with comfort and legroom being top-class. There are great sight-lines in both the Stalls and Circle, although it is recommended to sit in the lower Stalls for the best overall view.

Good value seats

The National Theatre boasts an excellent Entry Pass scheme for under 25's, allowing tickets for productions to be purchased for £5. These seats are located throughout the theatre and typically allow for excellent views! Alternatively, sit towards the rear of the Stalls or Circle for an unobstructed view of the stage which may only feel a tad distant.

Premium seats

Sit in the Stalls for the best view of the stage, namely centrally between Row E and Row M. Alternatively, sitting in the first two rows of the Circle allows for an excellent view of the entire stage. For the most intimate experience, sit in the front few rows to feel entirely immersed!

Good seat a bit the the right, but the whole stage is clearly visible. The rake at the NT is good, so you should be fine looking over heads. Leg room is sufficient, just the comfort is always a bit of a struggle after a while because the back rests are... More

There's plenty of leg room for Rutherford and Son (the front row of the Lyttleton can vary though, depending on staging). The stage is quite high so you can feel your neck aching after the full length of show and the seats are rather narrow so can be... More
