As soon as you enter the museum, strange sounds and sights will surround you, including the gallery of shrunken heads, the Elephant Man, a mirror maze, and the world's smallest car. These exhibits are just a sampling from five floors of oddities. By using our London holiday planner, you can arrange your visit to Ripley's Believe It or Not! and other attractions in London.

  • I was looking forward to visiting Ripley's Believe It or Not as I loved the one in Orlando. However, I was very disappointed. The first floor (5th) we entered was "The Warehouse". The items on display...  read more »
  • Worth a visit, lots of advice about going after 5pm. We found cheap tickets online. Short of time so we whizzed through, but still an enjoyable hour and half. We had seen similar things in Edinburgh a...  read more »
  • There was so much to do, see, and learn! Make sure you have enough time because you'll need it. A great place for those who like the weird and wonderful! 
  • Visited this with my partner who had received entry as a gift. Not somewhere I would choose to go, but threw myself into it all the same. The trouble with it is, it's an awfully big place, full of an awful lot of nothing. Yes there are a few stand out items, but on the whole it's a load of old tat dressed up to make you think you're in some kind of museum. The Hard Rock Caff bit feels out of place and almost as though it's been plonked in place to fill a room that desperately needed filling. 'Themed' rooms are messy and half-hearted. Sad then that they charge a heck of a lot of money for this. Never again.
  • I went there with a voucher which included the visit price, queue pass and the lazer thing. Even though it wasn't busy with no que because of using the voucher I had to pay for the que pass even no people were waiting. I also believe it's not affortable. Staff was very polite and helpful by the way
  • It was ok, more suited to slightly older children (11+) so the younger ones were bored for much of the time. I expected to be able to spend more time there and have a more interactive experience. The mirror maze and laser race sounded very enticing but I wouldn't rate them very highly and took up less than 5 mins of our time there. Too much gruesome stuff that the younger kids didn't want to see too (torture exhibits, strange body features, strange body 'enhancements').
  • Really cool and fun place to visit. Not that expensive. It s great for kids to visit with their parents. There are also a laser race and a mirror maze which are really fun.
  • Ripleys was so cool! A lot of things things were epic and it is a great place for a trip.
