National Theatre: Lyttelton TheatreThe Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. With 890 seats, it is a well-sized theatre. Some of the notable productions held here include The Hothouse by Harold Pinter, and The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.
