Nothing to shocking or exciting about Ripley's, a discount voucher makes it worthwhile. The black hole and the mirror maze made the attraction otherwise not worth the full price.

My daughter had wanted to go for a while now so we got to go last weekend. I thought it was expensive for what it was. There were a few items that were very interesting like faces made out of bottle tops ect. But on the whole I thought it was very over rated and very expensive.

Ripley's houses a number of peculiar artefacts across a few different floors. A museum of sorts for the weird and wonderful, it has some interesting stuff such as the shrunken heads. Other than a few different unique items such as these, there really isn't that much to interest anyone over the age of 10.

My 10 year old said she wanted to go so we took advantage of the 2 for 1 fast track deal when you travel by train so it was about £60 for a family of 4 including a couple of guides. As it was, the fast track was a useless gift on this particular day as there wasn't anyone else... More

The staff were friendly and the museum has so many interesting artefacts, pieces of art and interactive stands. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and the mirror maze and laser challenge were a good bonus.

Expensive but interesting - some weird and wonderful stuff her to take a max of 2 hours round. the maze and optic tunnel are best but the price tag is very much extortionate! Some freaky little bits and very interesting.

The first thing to note about Ripleys London, is the opening hours, which are great! We arrived at 8:30pm on a Saturday evening, probably about 2 hours after many of the other attractions had closed for the day, but thankfully not the case for this place which is open till midnight. We hadn't been to a Ripleys before, but was... More

Eclectic mix of marvels and wonders from the world, fascinating facts, figures and artifacts, a lot to see and explore, take your time and look into, on and around all the various rooms not only the big items but all the information on the walls too. The mirror maze was a good laugh, even for adults, younger ones will enjoy... 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.
