I went to that place because we could not think of something else to do on a rainy day in London. I didn't expect much as our group was also a bit older. But as we visited that place everyone of us was just amazed with Ripleys. We spend half of a day there and it was just great. You... More

I took my children to this exhibit. It was so amazing and just went on and on and there was so much to entertain my children. The highlights were the mirror maze, the impossible laser race and the black hole.

We enjoyed our trip, interesting displays and friendly staff. Dont rush round as once you reach the end theres no going back in. Do the laser bit at the end in pairs as if one person rushes through and hits the button then its game over for everyone. We got cheap tickets online through picniq. We also bought the photo...

Had fun for a couple of hours with my 13 year old, but glad we booked a fortnight ago & got half price tickets, not worth paying the full price & don't pay the extra to avoid the queues, as there aren't any (well not on a Thursday in school holidays). Lots of curiosities but you have to spend time... More

My son had wanted to go here for some time so I decided to try it out. He really enjoyed himself and it was very educational, I learnt a few interesting things too. It was topped off with a few fun elements including the mirror maze and laser quest. Situated right outside Piccadilly Circus tube station so very easy to... More

We took our grandchildren on a trip to London and to visit Ripleys. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. There are four floors to see and we easily spent some three hours - and even then did not really get to see everything. Well worth another visit. My only suggestion is that more direction signs would be helpful. It is such... More

A lot to see and wonder at - some things a little ghoulish but on the whole very entertaining. We ordered the tickets on line and got a very good price, Very good location just beside the exit from Piccadilly underground station.

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.
