Not one, not two, but three million people already agree that The Lion King is one of the most successful musicals in the history of Spain. This show, which has been showing at the Lope de Vega Theatre on Gran Vía since 2011, has now done more than 2,000 performances and has already become a vital part of this well-known Madrid street.
Its location is also an important appeal when it comes to attracting people, because Gran Vía, besides being the Madrid Broadway where the best theatres of the city are brought together, is a street with glamour and its closeness to the centre makes it even more attractive. It is a joy to walk through this illuminated street at any time and travel from Alcalá to Plaza de España passing through Callao.
Of course, if you go to see The Lion King and want to enjoy the full experience, the worst thing you can do is try to travel on Gran Vía by car. ERROR! It is an ordeal. It is one of the busiest streets in Madrid and also finding a parking space is very difficult and you face the problem of the Residential Priority Areas (APR in Spanish), where you cannot enter with the car without risking a fine.
Therefore, the best option is to book your parking in advance with Parclick and get rid of those problems, and in just two minutes online you can choose the garage you want to leave your car near the Lope de Vega Theatre.
Whether before or after the show, if you are going to see The Lion King, you have to take a unique walk along the famous Gran Vía in Madrid. An important stop is in front of the Lope de Vega, where the façade will make you want to enter to enjoy the musical. But this street has a lot of interesting points like the burger restaurant Five Guys, Obama's favourite franchise (with this claim and you have to try it).
In fact, depending on the plan you have for before or after the musical, you can take a look at our interactive map and see all the parking options to leave your car that Parclick offers you. So you can reserve your space at the middle ground or see which one is the best price-quality ratio.
