If you like interesting, weird, and fun things this is the place for you. I would recommend you search the internet for special offers otherwise the entry cost is expensive for whats on offer. I managed to get a two from the price of one entry, so £29 for the two of us. There are many interesting things on display,... More

As everyone else said, it is kind of random display and ok, but I enjoyed it. It is one of those places that you expect to see more, especially for the price. We got 2 for 1 offer and still think it was too much. Full price is ridiculous. Charging £27 for an adult is too much. The staff was... More

It was good fun.....for an hour. For the cost of entry I would expect to spend at least 3-4 hours at an attraction. Just short of £100 for a family of 4 Was not good value at all.

This place is entertaining, educational and unbelievable at the same time. It was very interesting to go through different floors and experience all this museum has to offer. Especially I loved the Mirror Maze and The Black Hole. I believe this is a place to visit while you are in London. :)

Whilst I was in London last week, we had an hour and a half to kill, so we stumbled on Ripleys, and well, the decision made itself! On entering the building, you get an idea of what to expect, with the weird and the wonderful scattered all around! We even asked the receptionist what it was about, and she called... More

I was in London for a fleeting visit and, with my brother, decided to visit Ripley's on the spur of the moment. We stood down a nearby street, looking shady whilst browsing the mobile web for deals, got one that was pretty much 2-4-1 and sought out an internet cafe (much harder than it was 10 years ago) Said deal...

My stay at Fairfield in was excellent. The staff were so friendly and attentive to all my needs. The most helpful during my stay was a young lady named Brittany that answered all of my questions and made sure everything I needed was taken care of promptly. Thanks Brittany for a wonderful stay.

Visited on a recent trip to London as id heard really good reviews about it. Me and my friend (maybe it's better with children?!) got discounted tickets. There is no need to pay full price (and I most certainly wouldn't) It probably took us about an hour n half - no more to walk round. There were some interesting pieces... More

We were looking for something do to our last day visiting and we saw this. I have only ever been to one other before in Florida, and this was was a lot better. The rooms are separated by topic which makes it a lot easier to follow along with the artifacts.

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.
