Enjoy your morning coffee at the National Theatre's espresso bar and admire the brilliantly brutalist interiors and exteriors. Then follow the river down to Nick Hytner's new Bridge Theatre for a St John lunch (their famous doughnuts and all).
Get your afternoon tea at The Union Theatre tucked away in a courtyard with a warm and rustic feel inside.
