An Eye for Adventure

Central London attraction, Ripley's Believe It or Not! London, known for its bizarre artefacts and interactive experiences, is set to launch the world's first 500ft spherical restaurant, the 'London Eyeball'. Following the recent news about the planned redevelopment of the Trocadero, Ripley's Believe It or Not! London plans to build the restaurant on the top of the existing attraction, located at 1 Piccadilly Circus. Construction is due to start later in the month for launch in time for summer 2015.

The restaurant will offer a wonderfully weird dining experience including fish and sheep's heads and fried lizards as well as the chance to view the infamously hectic action that takes place in Piccadilly Circus with 360 degree views through the giant glass eyeball eatery.Inspired by the 'Cuban eye popper', Avelino Perez Matos, the restaurant takes its design inspiration from the human eyeball. Diners will be able to indulge in a range of themed food and drinks which also feature other prominent characters from the attraction. Dishes include Russian 'ukha', a fish soup served complete with floating fish heads; Icelandic 'svio', boiled sheep's head; and spicy fried lizards.

With more than 700 amazing artefacts on display over six floors, the attractioncelebrates the weird, wonderful and bizarre in all its forms. With everything you can imagine (and plenty more you can't), Ripley's Believe It or Not! London is a family day out that's definitely out of the ordinary. Ripley's Believe It or Not! London is open seven days a week, 365 days a year from 10am until midnight (last admission 10.30pm). Tickets to this world of wonders situated in the heart of London's West End are GBP26.95 (US$45) per adult.
