I loved it! Although this attraction is quite expensive we went in with the two for one tickets that come with TFL, so this made it worth it for us. You enjoy seven levels of fun, it includes a spinning black hole tunnel, mirror maze and laser tag game (laser tag was not that great).. Ripley's is a very fun... More

My mum, 6 year old daughter and brother who lives in London visited Ripleys during our mini break on August 30th-1st Sept. It was one of two main attractions we visited (evening visit), along with Buckingham Palace (see my review)...we weren't disappointed at all. We thought the entrance fee was reasonable and hoped that it would entertain us all for... More

I just love ripleys. I'm a massive museum fan, and this one is just quirky and weird, and there's loads of cool stuff to see. Kind of a one time visit.

We visited this attraction/museum in July with our family of 5. Prices are absolutely shocking, especially when you start walking around and realise how bad it is! We actually all started laughing whilst walking around because it was so bad, please don't waste your money. The only enjoyable thing was the mirror maze but this did not make up for... More

My eldest was keen to have the Ripley experience. I remember my grandmother having Ripley's books when I was a youngster, so I agreed. A second teenage son reluctantly agreed to come with us. I checked for online offers and was pleased to get a voucher for 20% off. We paid, went in, quite enjoyed the experience - how often... More

Wow! Tallest, fattest, shortest, thinnest, it's all there! Live models to give you a real perspective on all the people! A moving yet still platform to walk across! Amazing, weird facts! It's also very funny and very good! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Even the lift is good!

We visited Ripley's the second time now and it was again an interesting experience. The museum is a big collection of weird things from all over the world and of art pieces which were produced in unusual ways. I would recommend to take some time inside and to actually read the little descriptions for every piece. This is not an... More

We visited Ripley’s in August with the kids. We booked the tickets on-line the day before to get the 15% saving, for a family of 4 it cost £67.96. We thoroughly enjoyed looking around the floors of weird and wonderful artefacts (over 700) and strange things and the weird facts. We start at the 5th Floor and you make your... More
