The Lion King Tickets
Lyceum Theatre, 21 Wellington Street, London, London, WC2E 7RQ
Approx. capacity: 2100
The Lyceum Theatre is a 2,000-seat West End theatre located in the City of Westminster, on Wellington Street, just off the Strand. There has been a theatre with this name in the locality since 1765, and the present site opened on 14 July 1834 to a design by Samuel Beazley. The building was unique in that it had a balcony overhanging the dress circle. It was built by the partnership of Peto & Grissell. The present building retains Beazley's facade and grand portico, but the theatre behind is substantially different from the 1904 design of Bertie Crewe, restored to theatrical use in 1996 by Holohan Architects, after a long period of use as a Mecca Ballroom. The most recent shows at the theatre have been Jesus Christ Superstar, Oklahoma! and The Lion King.
The Lyceum Theatre is located between Covent Garden (served by the Piccadilly Line) and Charing Cross (served by the Northern and Bakerloo lines) tube stations.
The nearest train station is Charing Cross.
The theatre is in central London so it is advised to use public transport where possible. 21 Wellington Street London WC2E 7RQ

Disney's award-winning musical THE LION KING is now in its 16th year at London's Lyceum Theatre. Julie Taymor's reimagining of Disney's beloved animated film is a theatrical event you will never forget. Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains to the evocative rhythms of Africa, this spectacular production explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music to tell the timeless story of Simba and his epic journey to fulfil his destiny as King of the Pridelands. Julie Taymor, one of the world's most innovative directors, brought a vast array of disciplines to THE LION KING, including extensive experience staging epic theatre and opera productions, exploring classic myths through ritualised puppetry, mask, and movement. THE LION KING was the first musical she directed in the commercial theatre, and Taymor made Broadway history by becoming the first woman to win the Tony Award for "Best Director of a Musical". This acclaimed production has been seen by over 75 million people around the world, and in addition to the London production can currently be seen in New York, Hamburg, Tokyo, Madrid, Mexico City, Melbourne, Basel and on tour across North America, and Japan.
