Our family enjoyed Ripley's believe it or not but it is overpriced on the door for what it is. The deals on the internet do make it a worthwhile trip though. There are lots of interesting pieces, the kids loved the mirror maze and the laser room. If you're looking for something indoor due to the weather for a couple... More

After reading mixed reviews re value for money I decided to exchange some Tesco vouchers and pay £32.00 for the four of us rather than the full £80.00 and it was such a great visit. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it as did my husband and I. Lots of interesting things to see and took us about 3 hours to complete... More

The museum needs restoration in some areas that already look quite old. The price is extremely high for what it offers. Some parts of the museum are quite dirty (glasses, mirrors, floor).

There are many displays and fact sheets to go with them so plan to spend a lot of time here and wear comfortable shoes. Some were very interesting and some not so much. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting. We visited a lot of tourist places during the week and this was by far the most expensive.

I visited Ripley's a few weeks back with friends and I am pleased with the experience. There are rather odd and bizarre facts and things you will find hard to believe, and also art and history that will take your breath away. Not to miss the Mirror room and the laser game! Great experience that can also be combined with... 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.
