About Lyceum Theatre

The Lyceum Theatre is located on Wellington Street, just off the Strand, and is one of a number of theatres that make up London's famous West End. Like many of the city's theatres, it has a long history that includes periods of critical acclaim and instability, a number of fires, an in-house ghost, some of the greatest musical icons of the modern age and a rebirth that has seen the Lyceum's annual audience grow to over 760,000.


The theatre is instantly recognisable by its famous portico and façade, and its most recent renovation bestowed upon it a great deal of detailed rococo ornamentation. Currently, it is home to the hugely successful Lion King musical, which has thrilled audiences since opening in 1999. 





Amazing Lion King Show

by Dominique Elsey

We went to see the Lion King at the Lyceum and had an incredible day out. Now that they know they do relaxed performances, I'll be checking their programme more often.


What a spectacle!

by Lucy Evans

I've been to see the Lion King twice now and both times it's been fantastic. The theatre is easy easy to get around and in a great location in London.
