Ripley's is full of amazing artefacts and something for anyone and everyone. There is three other interactive attractions such as a laser maze, mirror maze and a rotating black hole. Subsequently it is a great visit on its own, not just to burn a few hours.

We paid for the evening pass (5pm - midnight) for about £16 per person. There was 3 staff at the door when we arrived all chatting and ignored us, the 2 boys at the till carried on talking and only stopped to tell us to take the lift up to 5. After looking around for about 5 minutes we were... More

Visited recently with my husband and sister in law. The mirrors room seemed really appealing online but when we were there the mirrors were so dirty you could tell right away there's one in front of you. :) Short staffed, one lady was just everywhere on all floors. After such a poor experience went down at the 5D Cinema and... More

There are a number of issues I had with this attraction. First and foremost is the state of the place. It's really shabby and run down. There is paint missing, dust and dirt on most of the exhibits, some of the exhibits have fallen over so you cannot see them and it just generally feels in need of some TLC.... More

As part of a trip to London with kids they were desperate to go and I am glad that I used Tesco vouchers to pay for the tickets as there was no way we would have paid full price to get in. It opened on time, but the mirror maze didn't open until 1100 and there's not a lot to... More

Was alright but really overpriced even with voucher! I was expecting it to be a lot more interactive than it was - lots of reading about articles and many articles didn't even had anything written other than a name. Mirror maze was fun but mirrors were too dirty to really enjoy. The laser game at the end was excellent! The... More

The museum houses an unending series of boring stories. There are far between the stories that are exciting to indulge in. This combined with the museum appears worn and dirty, makes you urgently through the museum. It was a disappointment that the coffee shop was closed.

We were expecting so much more for such an expensive attraction. Such a rip off...The whole visit took 30 minutes. A total waste of time.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
