You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING....

You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING. Brilliantly re-imagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands. 'There is simply nothing else like it.' The New York Times

Such a brilliant show, I've been 3 times with different family groups and enjoyed it each time. The tickets are pricey but it's worth getting a good seat!

I am a massive fan of Disney, and whilst the production is done well, and the cast is outstanding. I just didn't get it. The production was too old for children (5-10/11) as there is not much spoken words and they don't seem to get what is going on..... And yet at the same time I (30) had very little... More

This was my second visit to watch the Lion King, and after hyping it up to everyone who I was with it certainly didn't disappoint!! The music is brilliant, the African drummers who play from the boxes are constantly on the go. Rafiki was just perfect! Fantastic show!

Booked to see the matinee of The Lion King. It was breathtaking, stunning, colourful, brilliant, wonderful. The costumes were amazing, elephants, giraffes everything, just stunning. The cast were superb. Could have just stayed in my seat and watched it all over again. We had great seats in the Royal Circle F29 & F30. Totally recommend this show.

First thing to say, easy venue to get to, can be easily walked from Charring Cross tube on the Northern Line it is not more than 15 minutes walk along The Strand. If you have pre-booked please do not go to the main entrance, go to the box office they will print out your tickets there. The theatre is absolutely... More

One of the best shows we have ever seen, I can see why it has ran for so many years. Very talented actors and an incredibly designed stage set.

I've seen numerous theatre shows and musicals but this by far, is the absolute best. We had an aisle seat this time and would highly recommend this seating to enjoy the whole experience of the musical. We were in row C but for the best view point, I would recommend maybe F or G aisle seats. The cast members playing... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
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.
