Phenomenal London musical, The Lion King, is running with packed house at the opulent Lyceum Theatre London. 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.

We were told by a few people who found out that we were going to London to watch a show. My husband and I decided to watch The Lion King. And boy, we were impressed! I bought our tickets online. The stage, the orchestra, the singers, the colours, the props, the ambience, everything worked together. Everyone is so talented! They... More

There aren't any words that will do this show justice, so I will keep it short! The cast = Fantastic and gripping! The special effect = Unreal and amazing! The theatre staff = Friendly and professional! The theatre itself = Clean, organised, comfy and inviting! The overall experience = Second to none and would 110% recommend! If you're a Disney...

Book your reservations early. Be careful who you book thru though. There are agencies that charge a HUGE fee over and above the ticket face value price. Plus, if you are going to get a drink at intermission, place a pre-order. This is a must otherwise the lines are in tolerable.

Best stage I have ever seen. Special effects amazing. The voices of the singers great. The way they made you believe they were actual animals was clever. Great colours and sounds of Africa.

Absolutely amazing show, stunning to watch. I couldn't believe how they bring the animals to life. At times you don't know where to watch there is so much going on on stage. even my husband loved it and he is not a musical fan!

What a show, you will be mesmerized from the very start as the colorful show will leave you enthralled till the end. Great soundtrack that you can sing along, Costumes alone will just make your jaws drop. You will remember this enormous production for years to come and there is no other contender which comes even close. Do not miss

The orchestra started and the curtain went up. The first few notes that was sang gave me goosebumps and I was welling up! It was beautiful! The theater it self (like so many other theaters in London) was old and a little worn but you're here to listen and enjoy the mastery that's created on stage. This show has been... More

As a Disney production I was expecting a professional and kind of standard show. I have seen a short theatre in Disney and that was it. However, the Lion King in London was incredibly good. It has live music with orquestra and 2 very good percussionists in the balconies, one in each side of the theatre. The costumes were amazing... More
