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.'

A stunning loyal tribute to the movie. Disney's candid spirit in all its splendour. Notorious songs which you want to sing along, mind-blowing costumes, joyful performance... A delight for all

Family enjoyed this show. Highly recommend ordering tickets online and mailed to home to avoid waiting in a very long line to collect tickets.

My wife and I enjoyed The Lion King, London-style. The costumes and artwork are so wonderful! (I've seen the show in New York, and it was worth it going again.) The cast was strong. The ladies, in particular, had wonderful strong voices! This is a...More

Loved it, amazing costumes and excellent performances. Booked as a theatre, train, hotel break with hotels direct. Sat in second row from front of royal circle. High up but fabulous views.

Just amazing. We took a group of brownies to see it we all loved it. I'd been waiting a long time to see it and it was definitely worth the wait!

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.
