Welcome to the Award-Winning musical set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa.
At 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. Simba, Prince of Lions, enjoys his life as the heir apparent of the kingdom. When his evil uncle Scar kills his father and takes the queen as his wife things change. Scar tries to encourage Simba to his death, by making a pact with some hyenas. But the young lion manages to escape and is rescued by Timon and Pumbaa, a meercat and warthog who teach Simba their No Worries philosophy.

Hotels for a The Lion King Theatre Break
Disney’s The Lion King is at the Lyceum Theatre, just off The Strand. So when choosing hotels for your break, either look at hotels in the nearby area (Covent Garden or Holborn) or along the Piccadilly Line, the underground line that connects Covent Garden Tube station, the closest to the Lyceum Theatre, with the rest of London.
A really good alternative however are hotels on the Southbank.
Because the the Lyceum Theatre is so close to the Thames, it is only a short walk across the river to your hotel and often, the hotels on the Southbank are cheaper than their equivalent hotels on in Theatreland. It also gives you a great excuse to walk across the River Thames – which will provide you with one of the greatest views in the world: you heard it here.
Disney’s The Lion King Theatre Breaks Reviews
Want to write your own review?
The Lion King is a fantastic show. I and my husband have seen it in London 5 times and would definitely go again.
Every member of the audience in the theatre felt like they were part of the Lion King, from the actors in the aisles to the familiar and well known story it encapsulates. Great from start to finish, no matter what age.
The performances are great, the singing is first class, the dance routines are spectacular and there is a great African feel about the whole show. The scenery is impressive the myriad costumes are inventive and colourful and combine with the great puppetry. The whole show is beautifully lit with vibrant colour and subtle effects. I loved the way the whole space was at times filled with flying birds or clouds or jungle vegetation. A total feast for the eyes.
Timon and Pumbaa add wonderful comic relief and it all adds up to excellent family entertainment.
My 11 year old son thought that the whole thing was brilliant.
It is easy to see why it is still packing the theatre after 15 years.
My daughter and I both thought it was brilliant. It still has its charm… We sat in the stalls under the dress circle….I would recommend people that have children if they can sit by the aisle/stalls/near to the front to enjoy the characters that come into the crowd etc
