My kids loved it . I found it a little boring and seemed so long. But again that's my opinion. The nice part is when they come of stage and start to walk where the audience sit. I think that's the only nice thing I remember and of course the songs.

This show was everything we were looking for. We have waited a long time to come and see it and it was spectacular. The costumes and atmosphere was just what we hoped it would be. You will never be disappointed to see this show.

One of the best theatre shows in London for all the family especially for children. Expensive, but worth every penny.

You can see why this show has lasted as long as it has. The music was fantastic, as was the set and the costumes were outstanding. I also appreciated how the script was tweaked to accommodate new jokes on current affairs or currently trending celebs. The acting was outstanding. We spent a lot on our tickets but this was most...

We have seen musical shows of Lion King at the parks in Orlando over the years, but this was very special. We were lucky enough to have seats in the stalls five rows from the front. The show was truly magical, that Disney do so well, fantastic musical arrangements, costumes, and choreography. I can't recommend enough booking this show, wow,... More

Have been to watch the show twice, once in the stalls and once in the Royal circle. The show is incredible - one of the best on the west end! The tickets are very pricey, and there are rarely discounts... But it's worth the funds!
