Visited on Tuesday 10th October. We spotted this amazing building and had to stop and check it out. They certainly don't build them like that anymore.

The National theatre guided tour is the worst guided tour I have ever joined. The guide herself is not particularly good at English or presentation. She made us standing for about 15 to 20 min as soon as we entered the building listening to her...More
