Expect running herds of gazelles, cheetahs, birds, giraffes and many more incredible creatures!

The Lion King The Musical is an unforgettable, spectacular theatrical experience - Now playing at the Lyceum Theatre in London - Book your tickets today!
First saw this show around 12 years ago and I was utterly enthralled by it. Took my two kids to see it, but it didn't seem as stunning as I remember - maybe it's just me! Our seats were at the very back row, and the singing seemed a little quiet. The theatre itself seemed tired and the downstairs disabled ladies toilet was vile! I enjoyed the show, but was a little disappointed with the production quality - it seemed a little tired and dated.
Second time we've seen the Lion King, the first time being some 10 years ago. The cast may have changed but the show remains fantastic.
What amazing show it a must see
Great show , good seats at reasonable price. Enjoyed thoroughly
Superb in every way - outstanding performances from everyone.
I have seen the show before - 18 years ago, but this time the show exceeded all my expectations. The music, costumes, choreography and the whole show was a joy to experience.
Colourful, emotional, energetic, funny production. Brilliant for all ages. Great music, amazing choreography, fabulous effects. So much to see. A show not to be missed.

I've always wanted to see the Lion King and yesterday i did. Everyone had told me it was good but it was truly amazing. I enjoyed every single moment. Superb cast and awesome costumes.
Brilliant show, a must see. I saw this show with my Daughters when it first came out. This time we took my granddaughter, and it was fantastic.
Excellente we were 3 adults and 2 10 year olds from France 🇫🇷 the result is fan tas tic time watching en ruptured : the whole show is wonderful from beginning to end ; we will certainly recommend the show to all and the fact that the children don’t speak English is not a problem as they know the story and the songs
Can’t fault anything, every single cast member were amazing, I would definitely watch it over and over again. The singing was brilliant and some parts were so funny. I would recommend the lion king to anyone, the show we watched was the lady who played ‘Rafiki’ last show and it was so emotional seeing them all thank her. Just absolutely fantastic in every way!
show was very good
Amazing show.. All of Us enjoyed..
Brilliant show just was far too hot and I was a little desperate for it to end. I don’t know if the air con was on but it was extremely hot! I know the weather has been great but it was far too hot to enjoy the show by the last 30 mins
The most amazing show took 2x 8 year olds they were enthrawled from beginning to end. Highly recommend.
The show was brilliant... the costumes were awesome! Seats b34 and b35 were great, so close to the action!
My son and I enjoyed greatly. He wanted to go the next day again
Brilliant show and 3 grand daughters aged 9 to 12 thoroughly enjoyed it.
Brilliant show, second time I've taken my grandaughter and we both highly recommend it
My husband and I enjoyed every minute of this wonderful show. There were sad parts interesting and very very funny parts. So entertaining. I was amazed at the costumes they are magnificent, can't really choose a special part of the show it was just spectacular. The people in the costumes soon faded into the background and all I could focus on was the story. Amazing time loved it from start to finish. 🦁♌
It was amazing!! Will watch it again.
Lion King is a brilliant production. The costumes and sets were amazing. How they thought of and designed the animal costumes is fantastic. The production flows, follows the original Disney film. Young children were captivated by it. Excellent. Well done all.
Absolutely outstanding performance! Would definitely go and watch it again! The costumes were amazing and overall overwhelming!
Stunning and mesmerising.
Memorable goosebumps even the fourth time.
Show was amazing as always
One of the best shows that I had ever seen! The cast and setting are just amazing! It's epic to see how a show could be brought to life like this!
Absolutely amazing show, jam packed with colourful scenery and costumes. A 'must see' production.
It was just an incredible experience, everything was curated in extreme attention to details. A very enjoyable show
This was a second time watching the Lion King and it was still absolutely breathtakingly AMAZING! One of the best if not THE BEST musical.
