One of the South Bank's most memorable buildings, The National Theatre is London's cultural hub for the theatrical arts, housing three auditoriums that continually strive to present the best in innovation and talent alongside showcasing classic and new works. Finished in 1977, the brutalist concrete building's architecture has many naysayers but twice as many admirers, and has been Grade II listed since 1994. Many incredible works have benefited from their National Theatre patronage, including the recent successes of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, One Man Two Guvnors and the groundbreaking War Horse.
