The Lion King tickets
The Lion King is set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa. Disney's multi Tony and Olivier award-winning musical will redefine your expectations of theatre.
What Is The Lion King About?
Disney's Academy Award®-winning beloved film has been transformed into a magical theatrical experience that explodes with life in the rhythms of Africa, in the incredible stage production brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julian Taylor.
At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba and his epic adventure, a journey that sees him go a from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
A musical that is both a modern-day classic and a state-of-the-art multi-sensory experience, the African plains are brought to life on stage by amazing dancers and gigantic puppets that represent the varied and stunning African flora & fauna. Expect running herds of gazelles, cheetahs, birds, giraffes and many more incredible creatures!
As described by The New York Times: 'Suddenly, you're 4 years old again, and you've been taken to the circus for the first time. You can only marvel at the exotic procession of animals before you...' The Lion King The Musical is an unforgettable, spectacular theatrical experience - Now playing at the Lyceum Theatre in London - Book your tickets today!
This is my second time watching g this show however it was my partners first. Without a doubt the most wonderful performance, actors/actresses, costumes, music and theatre I have ever had the pleasure of watching! It’s like watching the lion king as a child all over again! Thank you so much for making it a marvellous evening!
Excellent from start to finis
For a fun musical that left me with a sense of wonderment and faith in the world, go see The Lion King. Costume design was amazing and the singing was stellar. The Lion King reminded me of Africa.
The show is wonderful, we enjoyed every moment of it!
I bought my mum tickets for the afternoon show and it was amazing! Some beautiful singing and dancing!
Spectacular, imaginative, humourous...perfect . A must see performance x
Fantastic. It is my second time.
What an amazing show, it’s nice that it’s kept the feel of the film but also added little extra bits to it. Lovely to see the actor (animals) walk down the stalls at the start. Can’t wait to go and see it again!! It’s a show for all the family
Break was to short to get to the toilet Kids everywhere fidgeting kicking and hanging on seats Show was great 👍
A ‘Not To Miss experience of a lifetime’.
great show 2nd time we have been through as always drinks and ice cream well over priced disgusting prices
The lion King was amazing we enjoyed it greatly and loved every minute of it from the very beginning to the very end Amazing
The show is absolutely brilliant. The costumes and scenery are amazing, with them doing parts in the audience makes you feel a part of it all. Would recommend this show.
What an incredible experience! A polished, moving and thoroughly entertaining masterpiece.
Loved the show, particularly the puppetry.
From start to finish the show is outstanding. The cast are amazing and really bring the audience into their spell. This has to be the best show that we have ever been to at the West End and will be returning time and time again to see.
It’s a must see!!!
Outstanding. Kids loved it.
Was such a lovely weekend down in London with my boyfriend. We’ve both heard amazing reviews from others we know. But we were so surprised how amazing it actually was! The actors and actresses are all very talented and the costumes were brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and would mostly likely be returning to see it again very soon. Was definitely the highlight of our weekend! 🦁
Only one thing to say -Amazing!!
Parts were clear but due to seating many parts were restricted due to heads in the way! The show itself was brilliant but the seats were disappointing for the money
Absolutely loved it I have seen it a number of times the script sets and music were fantastic. The children were transfixed! Worth every penny
Very enjoyable, clever sets, touching scenes sent shivers down our spines.
After years of waiting we finally got to see the lion king. From the first opening lines to the end we smiled, laughed, sang and cried. Wonderful costumes and scenes, cast so talented. I'll not be waiting long to return!!
Wow...wow...just absolutely wow. The set designs, the acting, singing, and dancing...the COSTUMES!!!! WOW!!!
Amazing theatrics. I have been wanting to see the show for some time and it was well worth the wait.
So glad we went to watch this. It was amazing. The costumes, the cast were amazing.x
If you only venture to one production while in London, do yourself a favour and make it The Lion King, thrilling from beginning to end.
What an absolute experience! My first ever theatre show and it put me through every emotion possible! An incredible show!! Will definitely be watching it again! Staff at the venue were so lovely and couldn’t have made it any nicer for us
It was the first time my granddaughter went to see a musical and she couldn't be more happy and moved by this production !
I have no words! It's just amazing!
Absolutely brilliant and well worth the money
We absolutely loved every minute of the performance. The artists were fabulous. The costumes and makeup quite extraordinary.
First time in London with the partner he absolutely loved it
2nd time I've seen this show and could quite easily go again. Highly recommend it.
I am in awe, the stage, depiction, acting and singing was beyond perfect. So many moments where my partner and I had goosebumps, the entire show was brilliant. The team deserve international recognition. Everyone needs to watch Lion King in theatre.
Absolutely breathtaking. Would recommend any time!
A great treat for a six year old. The performance is still as fresh, lively and professional from when we saw it in Birmingham 4 years ago. Great seats, booster cushion available for children. Great excitement in the theatre prior to performance and audience thoroughly enjoyed the show. Such gifted performers.
Loved it .seen it 10 times
Really quite amazing! You forget that there are no real animals on stage it just transported you there!
The Lion King performance has countless surprises, many of which will leave one in awe. The young Simba and Nila hold up their performances quite well, dancing and singing like true superstars. The costumes are breathtaking as well as the very large life size animals! So much fun, I would not recommend it for very small children, a bit long and sometimes scary.
I would highly recommend going to see The Lion King. Took my grandson for his 12th birthday present and daughter to see this. We thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end.
Really worth the price! Love it and would definitely see it again in the future!
Was absolutely outstanding. I laughed, I cried, best show I've seen by far. Well done to all who took part.
