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.'

Absolutely amazing! No words could ever do this musical justice, worth every penny! The staff are extremely helpful. Drinks and merchandise rather pricey but to be expected!

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.
