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.'

This was a great choice for an evening at the theatre. Great performance and so much for the eye to see. My 9 year old loved every minute.

My daughter insisted on seeing this and I've probably seen it 5 times in the states and this production was by far the best ever! The cast and sets were extraordinary!

Don't get me wrong, it was amazing and I still can't believe how they did it. Only issue is that it was word for word the same as the film. Would have preferred some additional seances and some adult humour. Wouldn't go again

We all thoroughly enjoyed the Lion King musical at the beautiful Lyceum Theatre. Everything was amazing ...the costumes, the stage props, the performers, the music, the singing! Lots of humor in the dialogue, especially between the Warthog & Meerkat! There wasn't a dull moment in...More

Totally amazing! The production that must go in to this is mind blowing. The singing is outstanding and I was at the point where I'd forgotten I was even watching puppets. Loved every minute!

If your thinking about it JUST GO it's amazing . Nothing else to add except first time I've taken the kids up the west end and I think it made us all fall in love with this artform again.

A stunning loyal tribute to the movie. Disney's candid spirit in all its splendour. Notorious songs which you want to sing along, mind-blowing costumes, joyful performance... A delight for all

Wow what an amazing show!! It was long wait (after I hastily booked the tickets and didn't check the dates and turned up in February for June showing oops) but it was so worth the wait! We got brilliant seats (aisle S in the stalls)...More

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

My husband and I showed up about 30 mins before show started...with no problems at all!
Which are the best seats for kids (5 & 9 yrs)? Torn between stalls for immersive experience vs royal circle for more holistic view. Worried that if we sit in stalls my youngest may not be able to see. This is once in lifetime for us so price not an issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks

if you Google "London theatre tickets", a number of websites come up, check for the most competitive rates. that's how I got our tickets. it was cheaper than the ticket stand outside our hotel.
