We managed to get an offer from a website the same day (a Saturday) which was over 50% off plus fast track entrance and a guide book. £44 for a family of four. It's an interesting place and worth going if you can get a deal. There's about 90 minutes' worth of things to do/see and some interesting trivia that... More

I find this attraction really interesting with all its quirky exhibits and fun along the way. If your with kids I am sure you could spend ages in here. The price is very expensive so would advice some planning to try and get a 2for1 or cheaper tickets. The ticket price is the only thing that put me off at... More

Staff friendly and helpful, not to busy, some interesting stuff to look at.. mirror maze was good fun. Over all we had a good time but its not something... More

Fortunate to live in outer London and frequent visitors to the tourist areas of Central London we have often walked past Ripleys Believe It Or Not. We frequently discussed visiting but wondered if the cost of entry and the attractions inside would appeal to a couple without children. To be fair we spent over two hours and found some exhibits...

Don't bother rubbish, very over priced, should have gone to the pub instead waste of £55 the mirror maze was the best bit and that took about three minutes to do, the best exhibit was the figures within the needles, don't waste your money on the fortune teller machine it said I would be a teacher... wrong

They deleted my comment from Facebook, didn't like my review on Facebook sighting that it was unproductive and too short. So... a longer review for you. It was my friends birthday so I organised a day out in London for her. We don't know what happened to the vouchers themselves but Ripleys assured me that if I paid again, and... More

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.
