The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre


The Lion King is a hugely popular London musical set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains, to the evocative rhythms of Africa.

The show brings the characters from the animated Disney film to life with imaginative costumes and amazing special effects. The Lion King has 25 species of animal, insect, fish and bird in its cast, represented by actors and puppets. You'll be astonished by the herds of full-size zebras and giraffes majestically filling the stage!

The Lion King features the music of Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, including the Academy Award-nominated song Circle Of Life. 

This uplifting adventure follows a fearless young lion cub called Simba as he learns about life on his journey to become King of the lions. It's a great show that's perfect for the whole family.

Julie Taymor


Adult Ticket: £35.00 to £139.50 (USD44.36 - USD176.82) per ticket

It's my 2nd day in London of a 4 day vacation, and I'm leaving Trafalgar Square and see a huge line of people at a ticket booth.

Curiosity got the best of me, and I walk up to discover it's a ticket booth to the many shows that are in London.

On a spur of the moment decision, I saw the signage for The Lion King, it is truly my favorite Disney film and bought me a ticket for the matinee show...more

Ok so, definitely feeling like I'm going against the grain here, but honestly, I think this show is overrated. I'm sorry to everyone else, especially those who love it enough to go multiple times, but I just didn't think it was that great.

I LOVE the movie, and my girlfriend is one of the biggest Disney lovers ever, and she knows the words for all the songs - just to help set the context in...more

As if anyone could leave this theatre show a bad review, it's such a beautiful show. The visuals and effects are spectacular and the cast were great. I'd recommend seeing The Lion King in theatre.

Tickets are, as most shows are, fairly expensive but you surely won't regret it. Probably the best show I've seen, far better than Chicago, We will Rock You or Miss Saigon.

For the best available...more
