Amazing!

Just breath taking!! We were in the Royal circle, row N, slightly obstructed view of the top of the backdrop from the grand circle above, didn't detract from the experience though.

I cannot describe how AMAZING The Lion King was! As a child this was by far my favourite disney film and absolutely had to go! So glad I did. I had goosebumps all the way through! Would go time and time again! ☺

This musical is aimed at children but adored by all ages. A really family event. Most will know a lot of the songs from the movie but they have added a few different ones in that we had not heard before. I have seen this musical twice before in Australia and Las Vegas but I still enjoy it as much... More

You will not be disappointed. Fantastic show with incredible production. We were sat at the front which probably weren't the best seats. But still a great show.

I'm a massive disney fan and the lion king if one of my favourites. It lived up to the films reputation. Goose bumps from the very beginning! A must see for fans and tourists!

My boyfriend paid for us to go for a Christmas present. He paid extra for the Royal circle seats which were perfect and also had its own private bar. The performance was incredible! All the music staging and vocals were beautifully put together. The costume's were brilliant and very lifelike! We both really enjoyed the show and would even go... More

Brought my partner to this, it was his 1st musical. We both LOVED it. Brilliant cast and the show has your attention throughout. Powerful voices. Have always recommend this musical to musical novices as I've never come across someone, adult or child, who has not enjoyed it.

WOW! Simply WOW! Booked this as a present for my friend and to say we were blown away is an understatement! We sat on the end of an aisle in the stalls and it was more than worth the money! Incredible cast with amazing singers! They got a standing ovation at the end... it was that good!!

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to watch The Lion King in the theatre and my boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with tickets. I have heard such great reviews but I was not ready for what I saw. The best thing I ever have, and probably ever will, see. Simply amazing, worth every single penny,... More

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
