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 production is brilliant and the actors take you in! The costumes are just the most amazing to see. We saw this with our teen granddaughters who throughly enjoyed it but it's something to be enjoyed by all ages.

Hi, I would say public transport like the tube or bus. Driving in Central London is to be avoided wherever possible
