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.'

As someone who has seen the show on Broadway in New York, I was expecting the show to be a lot more than it was. The opening number was amazing, but from there the show didn't wow me like how it did in New York....More

Excellent costumes and the opening scene is indeed amazing, however the voices and the some of the cast appear to no longer care enough and the experience especially for those prices is inadequate 😩

This was our first time seeing the lion king. Wow! It was amazing from start to finish. From the stage, costumes and singers. They were all outstanding and I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

No need to say anything really - this is a amazing show - go see it! Even side seats at reduced prices still have a good view.

We had picked this as we thought it would be fun and light. But it was so disappointing. The acting was generally great, in particular the lady playing Rafiki was fantastic, her voice was amazing,and the man playing Scar was great. The actors were not...More

It was my daughters birthday (15) so my wife and I took her to see the Lion King. We had good seats in row G in the Royal Circle. I would recommend the Royal Circle over the Stalls personally. Anyway, the show was just fantastic!...More

Must see. One of the best shows I have seen and I have seen loads. I have also seen this show on broadway too. Both excellent. Tickets a little pricy but worth it. Great day or night out.

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

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.
