Lyceum Theatre Tours

Lyceum Theatre
The Lyceum Theatre has been around since the 18th century, though the present venue was completed in 1904. Bram Stoker was inspired to write Dracula while working at the theater under Sir Henry Irving in 1897. Since then, many other top performers have trodden the boards, including Sir John Gielgud, Prince, and the cast of The Lion King.

The Basics

Keen-eyed fans of The Crown may recognize the theater from the Netflix series. Visit the 2,100-seat Lyceum along with other filming locations, such as Lancaster House and Southwark Cathedral, or opt for a historical tour to learn more about the theater’s unusual past. For a more traditional West End experience, catch a performance of The Lion King, which has been playing weekly at the Lyceum since 1999.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Lyceum Theatre is a must-see for musical lovers and theater historians.
  • The venue is wheelchair-accessible.
  • Strollers can be checked into the cloakroom for a small fee.

How to Get There
The Lyceum Theatre is about a 10-minute walk from Charing Cross railway station, and a 5-minute walk from Covent Garden tube station (on the Piccadilly line). Several local buses serve the area as well. The nearest Q-Park (car park) is in Chinatown—theater ticket holders get a 50 perfect discount. Avoid driving in central London during the Congestion Charge hours.

When to Get There

The Lyceum stages shows every evening from Tuesday through Saturday, and matinees take place on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. If you’re looking for a last-minute ticket, a limited number of reduced-cost seats are available directly from the box office every day at opening time.

London’s West End

Located in the heart of London’s Theatreland (aka the West End), the Lyceum is a stone’s throw from other iconic institutions such as the Novello Theatre, Aldwych Theatre, and Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. But if musical theater isn’t your thing, don’t worry—the London Transport Museum, the London Film Museum, and Somerset House are also close by, providing plenty for you to do while your party’s musical fans get their fill of fabulousness.
