I purchased discounted tickets for after 5.30pm in advance, this was during half term and I'm pleased to say it was not busy at all so my family and I were able to browse around the exhibits at our leisure. I have a particular interest in the bizarre and unusual but I also wanted somewhere suitable to take my 6... More

We visited yesterday with 5 children ranging in ages 16-5years. All of the children enjoyed themselves and had a brilliant time, as did myself and husband. Fantastic family day out. Definitely worth a visit.

Lots of weird and wonderful things to explore inside. Best suited to children who can read well if they want to get the most from it but my 4 year old still enjoying himself.

Had vouchers to use, which meant free entry as after doing the attraction I wouldn't have wanted to pay the entry fee. The attraction in places seem tired, a lick of paint would help it. The staff at the front desk did not greet us as they seem to be sharing a private joke. There are some interesting facts and... More

We stop here for something to do as we had nothing planned on Friday afternoon the place is full of wonderful things some amazing pieces of art. We then waited in a long queue for the mirror maze when we got there unfortunately we were finished in a minute due to the hand prints on all the mirrors so we... More

Been here a couple of times, its very interesting but quite pricey, we decided to go last minute but I logged on to Groupon in the reception and downloaded a voucher for £12.95 it came through within minutes so well worth it.

It really is just a collection of random things, and although some of it is cool, a lot is just plain weird. Do not be fooled by the 5 floors either, the glass maze occupies its own floor, floor 1 is not used and the ground floor is a shop. It definitely passed the time but not necessarily the cheapest...

There are some interesting attractions, but the price lets this down significantly. The highlights include the revolving tunnel and the mirror maze, and while some of the other attractions are interesting, they certainly dont justify the entry fee. If you book in advance for a discount or use vouchers, it is a good day out, but dont pay the full... More

We ended up in here to pass the time really expensive for what it was. The mirror maze could have done with a clean due to the smudges I completed it in seconds I've seen better curiosities in that small freak show on Venice beach LA the one with the two headed turtle Spent more time waiting to get in...

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
