Originally built in 1794, the Lyceum Theatre has been entertaining audiences for years and providing them with many marvellous memories to treasure.

With a rich history behind it, this place once served as The English Opera House in the 1800s before opening as a concert venue in the 1960s and hosting big names such as Bob Marley, Queen and Iron Maiden. Since 1999, it's been the home of family favourite - Disney's The Lion King.

Hop off the train at Covent Garden Station, take a five-minute walk across Covent Garden market, and you'll find the Lyceum Theatre on Wellington Street.
