Fortunate to live in outer London and frequent visitors to the tourist areas of Central London we have often walked past Ripleys Believe It Or Not. We frequently discussed visiting but wondered if the cost of entry and the attractions inside would appeal to a couple without children. To be fair we spent over two hours and found some exhibits...

Don't bother rubbish, very over priced, should have gone to the pub instead waste of £55 the mirror maze was the best bit and that took about three minutes to do, the best exhibit was the figures within the needles, don't waste your money on the fortune teller machine it said I would be a teacher... wrong

They deleted my comment from Facebook, didn't like my review on Facebook sighting that it was unproductive and too short. So... a longer review for you. It was my friends birthday so I organised a day out in London for her. We don't know what happened to the vouchers themselves but Ripleys assured me that if I paid again, and... More

For those who are curious and like guines book. However, it is a little bit expensive for a "Museum".

As an exhibition it is quite wordy and I imagine with kids this could be boring but for adults it's great. It's just so random in a brilliant way. For half price tickets it's well worth it (go to picniq, they email you the tickets and you can just show them on your phone).

Although a couple of interesting items, definitely not worth spending the money. Totally overpriced !! We call it ripped off , believe it or not 😄. Much better things to do in London !

Really not worth the money - very overpriced even with the discount. Most of the exhibits were replicas or even just photos of things that aren't really that exciting anyway. Save your money and Google interesting facts instead!

Took kids after seeing an offer for tickets. We really didnt know what to expect. Its sort of Guiness book of Records geeks paradise. My kids were freaked out by most of it and fed up. If you are at a loose end with nothing better to do then pop in, but try and get some cheaper tickets online beforehand.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
