Loop System

For people using hearing aids with a T-setting, a Loop System operates in the Buffini Chao Deck.

Wheelchair Access

The main riverside entrance of the National Theatre, ‘The Sackler Pavilion’, has automatic sliding doors on both sides of the entrance lobby, with a levelled entrance carpet matwell. The floor of the pavilion is made of engineered brick leading to the four main lifts.

As you arrive out of the lifts onto level three, where the Buffini Chao Deck is situated, it is carpeted.

A shallow, paved ramp takes you to the Buffini Chao Deck terrace which is made of a composite decking floor finish, which surrounds the space.

Automatic button operated doors lead into the main space, which has a hardwood floor.

The Buffini Chao Deck is wheelchair accessible but the number of wheelchair users who can be accommodated can sometimes be limited. Please check with the sales team when enquiring about making a booking.

There is a disabled toilet in the Buffini Chao Deck.

There is free parking in the National Theatre car park for Blue Badge holders attending an event at the Buffini Chao Deck. The car park is under the National Theatre and there is ramp access to the lifts in the basement.
