I absolutely loved Ripley's. From the moment you walk in you start to see some of the weird and brilliantly wacky exhibits that you'll have the opportunity to marvel at over the next couple of hours. The staff are very friendly and engaging. My favourites bits were the Spiceworld exhibit and the spinning walkway. Highly recommended and will be back.

Ripley's believe or not is something worth paying a visit to. It's amazing and there are hundreds of things you would be mesmerised by. Educating in a fun and different way. It is ideal for all ages. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The maze and laser zone is fun and well worth the laugh with loved ones.

Ripley's is a fun, quirky, walk through maze museum. I came here in the evening with the other half. It was not particular busy so got to see a lots of cool, weird, interesting items and facts without having to rush.

I'm not too sure how to describe Ripley's -- a kind of messy museum with an eclectic collection of curiosities from around the world, with no central theme binding any of them together. Visited with three children ages 13-17 and we found most items interesting and entertaining, and we even learned some things we didn't know. My kids were particularly... More

I can't believe that this attraction is getting good to excellent reviews! £25 per person is not cheap. I should mention that I like the books - full of quirky and odd things - so one expects something similar here. But no, a disappointing collection and, please, why two rooms dedicated to the Spice Girls - come on! Also, (and... More

This was a birthday trip for myself and my 9 year old daughter accompanied by a friend of hers and 2 adults. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time, with the varied exhibits really firing my daughters imagination and thirst for knowledge and was her favourite part of the day.

As a schoold holiday day put for my 11 year old and his friend it was ok. My expectations werent high. The exhibits themselves were OK. We all though the mirror maze was great fun and very clever and the boys loved the lazer thing. All in all it was a good 2 - 2.5hours. I wouldn't do it again... More

I recently visited the London Ripley's. I was extremely disappointed with my visit. The place seemed really run down and I was less than amazed by most of the exhibits. We were literally the only customers in the place at the time and the staff are obviously watching us on CCTV and turning on and off lights as we more... More

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.
