Owner description: 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.

“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We've seen this musical a couple of times before and are never disappointed. This is a lively and enjoyable piece of entertainment. Good for the whole family. Went to the box office the day before and were still able to get good tickets even though the theatre was full on the day of the performance.

“5* Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

There was nothing to dislike about this show. Firstly i would definately recommend that you don't sit right at the front as the actor are higher up than you and you will not get a good view of their masks displaying their animal. This is a great show for all the family. I don't want to ruin it by spoiling it but would definately advise AISLE sits on the stalls or near the front of the royal circle.

“Great show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Very clever props to depict animals and scenarios. I particularly loved the giraffes and the stampede scene. The show was colourful, fast paced and the singing was great. Great performances from the young Simba and Nala too.
