If you’re up for a theatre experience in London, there’s nothing London (locals and tourists) loves more than the almost two-decades-old Disney musical, The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre in West End.
The Disney musical is internationally acclaimed as the most successful musical and history and that is not only due to Simba’s captivating story, but also to how the directors bring the animated feature to life on stage.
The Lion King – 17 years of Disney Magic
At the Lyceum Theatre, 57 cast members come together from Tuesday to Sunday, to take their audiences into a world of music and magic. The musical is now in its 17th years of booking, since it opened in West End in 1999.

The Lyceum Theatre
The Lyceum Theatre is unmistakably located in the heart of Covent Garden, just off Strand. Due to its position, you’ll have plenty of dining options with theatre menus, specially tailored to feed you just in time before the show begins.

The Lyceum Theatre is only a 5 minutes walk from Covent Garden underground station and a 10 minutes stroll from Charing Cross.
