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.'

Such a great show. Highly recomended, and worth to pay the extra money for a good seat. My daughter really enjoyed it

What an unbelievably professional show. The spectacular scenes were mesmerising and I was absolutely glued to my seat. Great singing and dancing, but the music and costumes are out of the world. The only let down were the revolting toilets- smelly and noisy.

Hi, I would say public transport like the tube or bus. Driving in Central London is to be avoided wherever possible
