You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING....

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.' The New York Times

Booked to see the matinee of The Lion King. It was breathtaking, stunning, colourful, brilliant, wonderful. The costumes were amazing, elephants, giraffes everything, just stunning. The cast were superb. Could have just stayed in my seat and watched it all over again. We had great seats in the Royal Circle F29 & F30. Totally recommend this show.

One of the best shows we have ever seen, I can see why it has ran for so many years. Very talented actors and an incredibly designed stage set.

I've seen numerous theatre shows and musicals but this by far, is the absolute best. We had an aisle seat this time and would highly recommend this seating to enjoy the whole experience of the musical. We were in row C but for the best view point, I would recommend maybe F or G aisle seats. The cast members playing... More

What a nice birthday present! The costumes were amazing- great singing. Sets were very well done. We enjoyed the show. Don't miss the first 5 minutes it is done very well. Beautiful theatre. Suggestion for any young children to be higher up so they can see better. They do have booster seats for £1. Also come at least 30 mins.... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
