Robert Ripley was an explorer extraordinaire, a man who travelled the world seeking the bizarre, the unusual and the unbelievable. Ripley chronicled his travels to the most inaccessible spots - and the growing hoard of items he took home - in newspaper cartoons which made him a worldwide celebrity. Now you can experience this man's eye for the extraordinary at Ripley's Believe It or Not, the world's largest museum of breathtaking items from Robert Ripley's personal collection - including his renowned collection of Marilyn Monroe's personal items.
In all there are more than 700 exhibits, including many interactive sections, at Ripley's Believe It or Not on Piccadilly Circus in the heart of London's West End. You'll see representations of the world's tallest man, the women in Burma who wear up to 25 rings around their necks, coffins shaped like eagles - and a chilling collection of genuine shrunken heads. There's London's biggest mirror maze to get lost in and some remarkable artwork created from unlikely materials, including a portrait of John Lennon on a VW Beetle hood and of Kate Middleton in lipstick kisses. To avoid queuing for this prime London attraction we'd advise booking in advance, in order to give yourself maximum time to enjoy this remarkable show.
