Overall the show was fantastic, great costumes and scripting. Would highly recommend. Only disappointing thing....stay clear of the Malbec wine, absolutely horrible!

Was reluctant to see after hearing mixed reviews, but in the end was thoroughly impressed. The costumes and puppetry are outstanding.

It was really a wonderful musical for all the family, I liked it very much, so did my friends’ 9 years old son. The story and the performance were very carefully prepared to see something very beautiful. I suggest it strongly.

I don’t know what you can say about this other than it being undeniably worth going. Costumes, staging and music were great. Will be seeing it again.

Excellent performance by all the cast. Even the stage fascinated me. Only thing i would fault is the price of tickets and the drinks and snacks on the night. Ive been to similar london shows and this is by far the most expensive.

After reading reviews we decided to book tickets for lion king. Found the show to be OK and not sure it was worth the £150. Maybe my expectations were far to high after reading such great reviews. If you’re a big fan of the lion...More

The second time I visit this musical. First time from the balcony, this time from line 13. Well worth the money to sit further, but still the price is too stiff. Tip: Pre-order drinks for the break.

Sorry I meant you can ask for a cushion not vision so that your child can view the Lion King and enjoy the show. The cushions are provided free of charge

Depends on your budget. There are so many hotels and restaurants in London, but as long as your near a tube station, you can get around anywhere quite easily in London.

I don’t think there’s an ‘official’ code. I saw folks dressed from jeans/sweaters to gowns/furs. But I would recommend clothes you would wear to a nice dinner. Loved loved loved the show! Have fun!
