Venue overview

The Lyceum Theatre is situated just off the Strand. Escaping demolition several times, the theatre has been used as a WWII ballroom and now hosts Disney and Julie Taymor's long-running The Lion King, which has been entertaining audiences since 1999.

Despite housing of the largest auditoriums in the West End, the theatre provides excellent views across all three seating tiers. Seating feels close to the stage, with minimal restrictions and great overall views.

Good value seats

Boxes in the Stalls are tremendous fun to sit in and are usually cheaper than seats throughout the Stalls, due to the height and the side-angle. Otherwise, sitting in the rear of the Royal Circle or in the front of the Grand Circle offers some good views for a discounted price.

Premium seats

Some of the best seats are in the front section of the Stalls and the Royal Circle. Sitting in the aisle in the Stalls allows for a tremendously immersive experience, as you will be able to see actors and puppets close-up. Alternatively, sit in the front and centre of the Royal Circle for an amazing panoramic view of the entire stage.

You can see all the stage without having to lean forwards. Only issue I can think of is if you are smaller than around 5”4 you may have to lean forward to see. There are wonderful things you can see from these seats but I don’t really want to ruin that... More

Good seat as they were in the stalls so you feel very much part of the production. However, the seat was on the end of the row meaning I kind of felt disconnected from the show which usually never happens when I sit on the end of a row. I think it’s because... More
