Ripley’s Believe It or Not! London

KidRated’s Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Top Tips:

  • Make a beeline for the Mirror Maze – kids love it!
  • Prepare to be scared as you make your way across the Black Hole
  • Ripley’s is a wacky place for a birthday party!

Including over 700 artefacts across its six floors, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is an experience that will boggle the minds of everyone in your family. It hosts a large range of exhibits and artwork, from a structure of London Bridge made with 253,000 matches to a black hole that you can explore! The exhibit is extremely interactive, which will enhance your curiosity as you struggle even from up close to comprehend the science behind its mirror maze, or the tunnel that gives you the sensation of swirling around 360°. The Impossible Laser Race is another much-loved favourite – can you beat its Mission-Impossible-style race against the clock?


The exhibit’s galleries are also fascinating. You’ll see attractions such as the world’s tallest man, or a life-sized knitted Ferrari …a worthy challenge for all grandparents out there to compete with! From conceivable spectacles to things beyond even the wildest child’s imagination, Ripley’s is jam-packed with wonders that you and your family will love.

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • There’s a free buggy park or you can keep your pushchair with you.
  • This is a totally bonkers mix of freak show, weird art and the bizarre in this world.
  • Great for kids who love facts and statistics.
  • Avoid the Dungeon Zone for younger kids (you may have to ask staff to help you get a lift to a different level).
