Luckily i got a 2 for 1 entry with rail tickets as this is definately not worth the price being charged.Its about time places like this put a more realistic price on entry fee.I refused to have my photo taken as felt this was being forced onto you.There are interesting things to see but this venue is not value for...

I am a big fan of Ripley's Believe It or Not, and have been to many of the museums over the world. The London museum does not disappoint, it has many interesting, strange & wonderful sights to be seen, with amazing facts.

A great trip for the children, but make sure you get a 2 for 1 or some kind of deal first. The exhibits were great, but my gripe is that, although I bought the photo package for £25-odd, which was supposed to include online access to the photos taken at the venue, which I particularly wanted, the link in the...

Visited here on recent trip to London. Fortunately we had Tesco vouchers so only paid a fraction of the usual admittance price. Was very disappointed and would have felt totally ripped off if we'd paid full price. There's a few things of interest but not £27 each worth! In addition to this they take your photograph during the visit and... More

Really fun day out, we were in there a good few hours and enjoyed every aspect. Highly reccommend for kids 9+. Allow yourself a few hours to get round! Lots of things to see, from the odd to the interesting.

Me and my girlfriend wandered around here in amazement for an hour or two. Originally we looked at the prices and were put off but when we asked a member of staff one evening if they do student discount, she said no but because of the time she discounted it down to just over £30 for the two of us....

Went to Piccadily circus and was pleasantly surprised to see this located right in the heart of the busy center. It was a good change of pace from all the site seeing with kids.

I have always wanted to go to Ripleys but been put off by the price. You can get two for one deals if you travel with certain train lines but I got a 2 for 1 fast track ticket through Buyagift for £22.95 which is even cheaper. It is good fun, there are some truly unusual exhibits, moving models, holograms,... More

Enormous amount of trivia to read and see, good for children too (although we didn't have any with us). My partner and I had concessional tickets and I did notice on entry that the attraction was quite pricey for what it was and this is the reason I have given 4 stars not 5. I'm not sure the exhibition warranted... More
