BLOG : Lion King seating plan

Planning on going to see The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre? Then you may want to check out a guide to The Lion King Seating Plan as I have put together for you. To begin, The Lion King theatre is staged in Broadway and the West End in The Lyceum Theatre. The Theatre is one of the largest and can accommodate approximately 2000 visitors. So choosing where to seat can be a nightmare!

Lion King
So let’s start with the best seats in the house.

Like with any other theatre, the best seats are Stalls or Royal Circle (dress circle). With the Lyceum there are a select few rows in the Stalls/Royal Circle which are their ‘premium seats’ these maybe difficult to book, as they may be kept for producers/ VIP’s or reserved for special performances. The seats in question are in the central block of the stalls row G to K and in the Royal Circle rows B-c central block.

Next would be known as Top Price seats. This is the bulk area of the Stalls and up to Row L of the Royal Circle. Stalls are very good, as the animals can be seen using the aisle space to make you feel part of the show.

The next price down goes to rear, side stalls between S and X, and Royal Circle rows M and N.

Then down from that you would have back rows of the Stalls X to ZA, side stalls seats between A to M, the front of the Grand Circle.

Finally the lowest prices are at the top/rear section of the theatre, so Grand Circle rows H to M. This theatre takes incredible care to make the show accessible to everybody. Wheelchair access is down a slope from a fire exit, which means users get good seats in the auditorium. Two disabled toilets are also available.

A low level doorbell for clientele needing assistance is at the entrance to the box office. There are 8 wheelchair spaces in the auditorium on the stalls level - four on either side of the auditorium. Customers with restricted mobility can access other levels by lift.For the drinkers amongst you, there are four bars; one in the Stalls, Two in the Royal Circle and one on the Grand Circle level. Please note that no food is permitted inside the auditorium except Ice cream and confectioneryI hope this short guide of The Lion King Seating Plan has helped you determine where you may want to sit to experience the best of the Lion King.
