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.

“Worth a watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great experience loved the show, it was a little too long for my 5 and 7 year old but well worth a look, I bought the seat from a booth in the street not the cheapest but very convenient for a last minute decision. Great costumes and cast

“Lion King a Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Amazing, breath taking and thoroughly entertaining!
Great sets and costumes with bits of emotion, laughter and music(of course!)
Only advice is to book early to get the best seats and not get the pricey yet distant ones.

“Beautiful show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This show was absolutely brilliant. The costuming was remarkable and even knowing the story didn't detract from being able to enjoy the show.

“Great but a little dated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I really enjoyed going to see the Lion King performance but I did feel in places the performance did feel a little dated and could do with a little TLC.
