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
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.
Here we are waiting for the lift to go up and there are already some oddities right here! Fascinating
Now myself and JD the Kid are always fighting for the best chair in the house – well I have found it and its larger than life 🙂
This Chinese Gift Warrior is my new best friend! I will have a large bowl of Ice Cream and a magical unicorn please. 🙂
This is amazing – its a hologram of a explorer in a very real office! I need this for when I am trying to hide from JD the Kid.
Everyone knows I love to travel and I want to go, explore and discover the World, and not without my trusted Sprayground back pack.
This is Abraham Lincoln and this was created from old computer keyboards, guys if you wanna get artistic then come to Ripleys! You will be inspired!
I love Music here are the Beatles and Guys just to let you know my song Bloggerholics will be released on the 01st April in the US. Watch out on my social media for the link.
Oh dear! What has this poor man done to deserve this – this is the torture chamber where bad people used to be subjected to horrid torture! Kids stay Good!
Ohhh its one of Ripleys challenges, wonder what it is? Oh WOW when you look through its the smallest horse I have ever seen smaller than a pin head! WOW
Beam me up! We love to know more about the Black Hole and you can do just that by visiting their Space Black Hole exhibition.
Be AMAZED and get very lost in Ripleys Maze of Mirrors, I kid you not you will get lost, I told JD to get lost and her actually did this time lol!
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
Oh just before I forget, Planet Hollywood has a very neat shop on site – where you can buy hoodies, tees, memorabilia and even these cute teddies, I want all of them!
Now they have a great menu with some really tasty dishes like chicken crunch, sliders, blackened shrimp, teriyaki salmon, and the fajitas, for kids they also have a kids menu! I have chosen sliders and garlic bread! Yum Yum.
Surf and Turf is my next dish – look at how delicious this looks and it really is. Challenge no 1??
So I have a sweet tooth and yes you all know it! So I have decided to have Strawberry Cheesecake, this is like Heaven on a spoon!
Oh O, JD the Kid – has set me a challenge to see how much I really do love Ice-Cream and has ordered this HUGE Brownie and Ice-Cream dessert! Help!
Did I finish it, haha you will have to watch the vlog on our YouTube channel! Now you are welcome to wander round and look at all of the memorabilia and they have some really great things to look at, when your there get your spy on and visit the Bond 007 room.
Or! Get your hands on The Wall of Fame! One Day hey???
And if I havent had enough sweet things I have also found my very own Golden Ticket! Willy Wonka I am on my way get ready! 😛
