If you are in London, please go to watch the Lion King. If possible, sit by the aisles as you get to see the costumes of the cast up close when they walk down the aisles. And they do it more than once! The audience was amazing and I spent the entire time in the theatre just smiling. Lots of... More

Your 'what to do list in London' absolutely must include this show! From the first moment until the last it is filled with surprises, all of them joyful. Songs, storyline, costumes (especially the costumes) just amaze and excite the whole time - I did not want it to end. Whatever your age and preferences, this show cannot fail to impress... More

I took my 11 year old grandson, currently on summer holidays, to see this long-running show at the Lyceum Theatre just off the Strand in Central London. I had booked at least 3 months prior in order to obtain seats with a good view and we sat centrally in the Grand Circle with a great view of the entire stage.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this spectacular production. The story ,though simple was presented in a never ending stream of amazing costumes and backdrops with moving songs to tell the story. The opening scene was breathtaking. The theatre was also spectacular with decorated boxes and ceilings and narrow winding staircases.

I've seen this show 7 times. I like the theatre, I like musicals, but this is a different genre altogether. Every time it finishes I plan my next visit. If you're debating whether or not to go and see the lion king in theatre, there's no option but to go. The best thing I've ever seen and I'm very excited... More

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.
