Didn't plan on going here but very bad weather so we spent £70 keeping dry. I have done Ripleys in Orlando and thought the kids, 9 &11, would enjoy it. Certainly wasn't worth the money, takes about 2/3 hours to see everything. There's a scary horror bit for over 12's only, not very scary! A good mirror maze, think the... More

we came here on August bank holiday, I had visited the Florida Ripley's which was brilliant so was not sure if this would be as good. I had a bogof ticket which was excellent value. We spent a couple of hours looking & reading about all the oddities in there . Was a good few hours spent on a rainy... More

I wasn't expecting much and thougth the 75 quid for four of us was expensive but changed my mind after spending ages looking at all the fascinating stuff on display. And there was much more more to see than I thought there would be. My grandchildren loved it

This is a bit of a mixed review... Whilst the place was good and full of artifacts my little girl found it quite boring.. whilst my son enjoyed the visit.. The best bits without a doubt are the black hole and the mirror maze... in fact kids could have spent hours there if we had let them! We used our... More

I went with friends and my partner ad had such a good time! lots of weird and wonderful things to see and do! But i'm glad we had vouchers from a website that a friend found otherwise i feel that for what it is the price is very high for what it was. I'm not saying it wasn't great because... More

I did have a good time but I was expecting a bit more for the price, compared to other attractions in London. My favourite part was the mirror maze (which costs more) & the quirky kitsch feel some of the attractions had. I did feel like some parts seemed like a modern day freak show. I ended up feeling bad... More

We had a good time at Ripley's.. I would haven't have had as much fun if I knew I paid full price. Still, the displays are good, and there are some pretty cool things in there! The mirror maze was great fun; our 7 and 9 year old loved it in there. We didn't go to the laser event because... More

We went on a Saturday and used the national rail voucher offer! The exhibits are fascinating and wonderfully weird! However I don't think we would have gone without the voucher! Over priced for what it was!

The entry fee was expensive at circa £25 per head, and whilst some of the exhibits were entertaining and interesting, it was particularly disappointing that most of the interactive exhibits were out of order. A particular feature highlighted in the promotional literature is a ‘Hall of Mirrors,’ but it was no more exciting than a mediocre fairground attraction.
