London Theatre - The Lion King

Advice needed, please!

Girlfriend has been hinting for a while at getting down to London to catch one of the West End musicals(we're from Scotland, and she's a dancer so is right into all these things) . Have decided to relent and treat her for her 21st birthday. After having spent several hours surfing and having sneaky peeks here and there I think The Lion King sounds like one of the most popular on at the minute.

Whats the best way of going about booking up for a weekend staying down in London - ie the buying a legit ticket route and seperate hotels, or getting some kind of package deal?? Checked with various websites and the prices vary quite substantially. What should I be looking for!?

Never had to do it before, so any websites, phone numbers, even hotel suggestions would be most appreciated.

Also, would anyone recommend this show, or any other!?

The lion king is a great show, pay a bit more for good seats I think I paied about £45 for each seat through ticketmaster. Try lastminute for hotel breaks they often do a dinner and a show combined with a hotel room. Hotels anywhere in london should be fine the theatre is very close the covent garden but hotels around there are expensive. Try looking a little further out along the piccadilly line to make transport easier.

Had a check on ticketmaster - the number of different ticket options is incredible! There are 5 levels, orchestral stalls, royal circle, outercircle and so on. Got ticketmaster loaded up just now, selected price level one (best i think) and also went for orchestral stalls. Available at £59 each - I assume these will be fairly decent seats?? Always thought the Royal circle would have been better, but they seem cheaper!!

Take a look at [url]www.show-and-stay.co.uk[/url] they will do a package for you with hotel, ticket, pre-theatre dinner if you want it and rail travel if you want to go by train.

The Lion King is a really good show, it has been on for a few years now but is still very popular. As you seem to have made your mind up about the show I would definitely suggest buying your tickets in advance to ensure that you have them rather than maybe leaving it until you get to London.

Top price seats tend to be around the £60 mark, there are five price levels for theatre tickets. The lower the price then normally the poorer the view. Orchestra stalls are the best seats, the higher up in the theatre you are the cheaper the seats.

I don't mind taking a look for you, if you let me know when you are looking to go and for how long and an idea of budget plus how you want to get to London will see what I can come up with for you.

Thanks ever so much engadine, such a kind offer, pretty much the norm on this here fine site :)

Right, the girlfriends birthday is late june so have to be after that, we're going to T in the Park in July though, and on holiday in August, so probably looking at September now. Having checked the calendar we have a holiday weekend up here the w/e 22nd September, so i think i'll go for that. Would hope to fly down from Glasgow on the 21st, but I can easily check those details out. Also checked availability on Ticketmaster and there are tickets available for the evening show on the 22nd (Orchestral Stalls at £59, which is what i'll go for)

It's her 21st, so quite a special birthday for her -so i'd like a 4star (or better!). Staying the Friday and Saturday. Are there any other attractions nearby that you would also recommend?

Now, with the tickets being on ticketmaster, am I best to book them just now or go for a package deal, in your opinion?

You are welcome Kev happy to help:)

I have had a look at booking a package and also booking a hotel and tickets separately, currently best prices I have found is for a package.

[url]www.holidayextras.co.uk[/url] select London Theatre Breaks from left hand side, takes you through to show and stay site. If you do it this way through quidco you can earn 3.8% cashback. They also have a price guarantee

2 night stay in a hotel on a bed & breakfast basis with top price tickets as follows

4* Marriott Maida Vale - £179 per person

4* Holiday Inn Bloomsbury - £184 per person

3* St Giles Hotel - £178.50 per person

They have other hotels available, these hotels are good value. You can add pre-theatre dinner for around £14 per person. They have lower prices for lower standard of hotel but as it is a special birthday sounds like you want a nice hotel.



I had a look at [url]www.superbreak.com[/url] they feature the same hotels as above and are more expensive. Holiday Inn is £236 per person.

Had a quick look at Easyjet prices currently £50 per person from Glasgow to Stansted.

As for other attractions - London Eye is worth a trip tickets are around£12.50 per person, trip lasts about 30 minutes. You can see for miles on a good day.

I liked the Tower of London, Madame Tussauds is pretty good as well. You better make sure you fit in some time for shopping!

Will have another look round tomorow and let you know if I come across anything better

Thanks again for your time engadine!!

The deal for the Marriot looks just about ideal - think i'll go for that one! Not had a chance to look anymore myself, works been a nightmare, so i'll do a little surfing tonight and if I can beat that i'll book up :)

Thanks for your help!

Although it doesn't specifically apply to the Lion King, but you may buy same day top seats ticket at half price in Leicester Square or Canary Wharf ticket offices. You can check the availability here.

Thanks titanium - very handy little site indeed, cheers for the info!!

As it's her 21st though, think i'll be forced into pre-booking, wouldnt want to head down there and end up with tickets to something completely different -would be the end of me, lol !
