  3. National Theatre Olivier



The National Theatre Olivier is the largest of the three theaters in the Royal National Theatre, based at the South Bank Centre - a cultural center showcasing the best in music, theater, film and art. The theater holds around 1150 people, depending on the production, and was named after actor Laurence Olivier. The fan-shaped layout of the seating is reminiscent of that in the Barbican's Theatre, and ensures that you'll have a good view of the stage wherever you're seated. The building has dining facilities, which are shared between the three theaters. These include two restaurants, three buffet bars and espresso bars. A range of productions are staged, with emphasis on high-quality and high-brow performances.
