The dazzling London show is mesmerizing theatre lovers of all ages successfully. The brilliant onstage presentation makes The Lion King delightful experience. The building of Lyceum Theatre had been used as a circus between the years 1794 and 1809. It was brought by Philip Astley after his amphitheatre was burnt to ashes at Westminister. « less

Paid extra for good seats, well worth it, mesmerized from start to finish, possibly the best show I have seen. Highly recommend that if you haven't seen it to make sure you put it on your bucketlist

A wonderful Sunday matinee performance from a cast full of energy. The costumes are diverse and clever to incorporate the animals that they are portraying and its a great family show that people of all ages will enjoy

Lion king was a brilliant show. The colourful movie is bought to life with these fantastic actors. As usual all the food and drink is overpriced. Remember to take your own snacks.
