Wait for it guys, in London there is a attraction with its six floors jam packed full of weird and wonderful curiosities, some things off, some things WOW, amazing art and crazy experiences all founded by Robert Ripley. Who is that I hear you say well, let me tell you a little story

ripley-microphone

Robert L. Ripley (1890–1949), a cartoonist, explorer, reporter, adventurer, and collector, who travelled to 201 countries in 35 years seeking the odd, the unusual, and the unexplained, odd you may think and yes you may be right, however the founding’s led to this great attraction being formed in the heart of London’s West End in Piccadilly – here you can See 700 strange and amazing artefacts across 19 themed galleries, such as a chunk of the Berlin Wall, a knitted Ferrari, the tallest man in the world, Tower Bridge made from matchsticks, a transformer and learn some crazy historical facts about when Humans were kept in Zoo and when Money wasn’t worth anything, got your attention I’m sure I have.

Today we are taking my beautiful Mummy out for Mothers Day and we have decided to get to Ripley’s London and get to see all these oddities after which we will be heading over to the 3rd year running No 1 Child Friendly restaurant in London to Planet Hollywood located in Haymarket.

Planet Hollywood is located in Haymarket, just near Piccadilly, the staff here are sooo friendly – we have the biggest table in the restaurant and its so cool, I feel like we are in the ULTIMATE seating area, they have colouring books at the ready and introduce us to our host who will be looking after us.

At Planet Hollywood, make sure you look out for the fun messaging screens, guests can tweet their own messages, pictured right here above us and watch out for the secret roving camera, the screens flip between cartoons, movies, music and messages to transmitting LIVE footage of diners
