Very good and interesting, would recommend. Should have put the final video at the start to make it crystal clear that all bodies were "real" bodies ! Freezing cold in the venue... destroyed a bit the enjoyment...

Great experience bought for my boyfriend to go he loved it.

An amazing detailed insight into how our body works and the problems that can occur and what’s behind our skin. Really enjoyed our visit.

Friendly helpful staff, not over crowded. Educational

Amazing day... everything is explained so well... I now want to take care of myself more and more ... we should treat our body with respect! Love it !
Nov 8, 2019
Really enjoyed our visit but parts were disrupted by silly school boys running around and laughing at certain exhibits
Nov 4, 2019
Absolutely amazing. Mind blowing stuff if you have any interest in anatomy and physiology. I’m now looking into taking my students so I can go again!!
Oct 28, 2019
Exhibition brilliant- loads of faff getting pre booked tickets where we were meant to be there 30mins before allocated time but as it was the first slot the box office hadn’t opened. Very odd the ‘box office’ is a que in the left then you have to que again to be scanned in on the right of the entrance hall then que again and be instructed on how to use a lift. Didn’t get to exhibit until 15mins later. But so worth the wait - exhibition brilliant and loads of new things that 19 years ago, when I first saw it, weren’t there. GO

I cannot express how amazing this exhibition was- the human body is incredible and I have so much respect and gratitude to the people who donated their bodies to help us understand the human body and mind - we are all absolute miracles !!!

Awesome x and staff really helpful. thanks
Oct 18, 2019
Really interesting definitely fo older kids though. Very interactive and audio input very beneficial, we really enjoyed the short film on how the exhibits are prepared - fascinating ... Four stars as we wanted a few pictures which can be googled I suppose , but understandable too. Staff were overall helpful and friendly all Smiled !

Great exhibition. Well worth the entrance fee. I found the film showing the process of plasticisation to be absolutely fascinating.
Sep 29, 2019
Very interesting exhibition, lots to see and we enjoyed using the blood pressure machines and cpr dummies. More for older kids/teens and adults as the little ones did get a bit bored at times.
Sep 28, 2019
Body Worlds is well worth a visit and great value for money. It gives you a great insight into how our bodies work with detailed exhibits that reveal the underlying structure of our bodies and how it all fits together

I thought it would be creepy (which I like) but instead I found it "odd" to be surrounded by all these medical teaching aids. They must be very useful for that purpose but otherwise they became somewhat tedious. Some of the notes on the wall were excellent (and I do have a familiarity with anatomy, massage and general health) about psychology but I couldn't take notes because my backpack had been confiscated. I was also hung up with headphones and a switch round my neck which I found irritating, especially as I had a walking stick. The diseased organs were also informative but I came away feeling quite depressed and glad to get back to live people with skin and enjoy my own reasonable good health at 70. I prefer the occult and mausoleums and charnel houses and forensics, especially where faces are actually PUT ON bones and one can see what people looked like when they were alive (ie Richard III) and what killed them and what diseases they suffered from.

To be honest i have been to other events he has put on ,both in London and abroad,but they never lose the ability to teach you new things. this one is about how your vital organs work and what happens when you abuse them. IT will take about two hours to walk round the event. if you have been before i would still go again .if you have not go and see just how great the human body is . lots to learn here both for adults and children

Good customer service, you get let in at your assigned time slot and there was no big queue. Easy to move around the exhibition without missing anything. It is spread over 3 floors 5, 4 and 3. We made the mistake of thinking there were 5 floors so rushed a bit. We paid an extra 5 pounds for the virtual reality experience but it was average. However we made savings by booking in advance. It is an intriguing experience particularly knowing they are real dead bodies but it’s not Gorey at all. Very well presented. Good aircon too. Well done body worlds .... you have a great staff team too

As a healthcare professional it was an amazing way to see the body. A great visualisation tool of the systems in their entirety.
Aug 18, 2019
I was really impressed with body works and its certainly unique. However, going with a 10, 12 and 14 year old i found that they were bored of listening and reading by the end. More interactiive things would have made such a difference to them and their whole experience. They had had it by the end, after the initial ohh and ahh they got bored. Bit of a shame
Aug 17, 2019
What a fascinating experience. Very well presented and informative. Really worth a visit and see the human body from the inside. Would recommend but not for small children.
Aug 10, 2019
A very educational exhibition. Staff were lovely and helpful and ran the whole process efficiently. Would definitely reccomend.
Aug 10, 2019
I’m very sorry but did not make it as at this minute I’m in hospital so hope to go very soon
Aug 4, 2019
I really enjoyed my visit, so educational. Would be great if this could be shown in schools it may make children think twice about looking after themselves i.e. eating properly, not smoking, excersise etc. I certainly would recommend it.
Aug 2, 2019
Really enjoyable and very interesring
Jul 31, 2019
If your in London go and see this amazing and fascinating to see and learn. Plus the location isn’t perfect for some shopping after
Jul 27, 2019
Learnt a lot, really fascinating and well set out. Only let down by the clunky point and click audio guide. Check out the Buckingham palace way of doing it, much more user friendly. The video of how they do the procedure may be worth putting at the start? Overall a must see.

My wife and I visited after much debating. We have an interest in anatomy and found this fascinating. It’s well laid out with a natural flow. The interactive elements are fun and the detail is easily digestible. The lifestyle advice is also spot on.

Very interesting A bit dark in places and would’ve been nice to be able to take pictures - the interactive cells video was very good
Jul 14, 2019
I have seen this exhibition twice, and am still amazed at how much I learnt about our bodies. It is so well done, and an interesting way to spend a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus.
Jul 11, 2019
Amazing exhibition. After we got out, we realised we spent 3.15 hrs inside. Absolutely worth visiting. My Biology mad daughter loved every minute of it.,
Jun 25, 2019
What a great exhibit, very informative, learnt so much. Definitely a great few hours well spent. Staff really friendly and helpful. Souvenirs a bit pricey though.
Jun 20, 2019
Probably the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen, it’s so fascinating and you learn so much about the things you don’t see on a day to day basis but things that keep you going Highly recommend this
Jun 17, 2019
A great exhibition and so well worth a visit. However, keep children under 10 away as it was so disruptive and very annoying trying to listen to the audio with these young kids running around and making a lot of noise.
May 27, 2019
I booked this for me and my partner i went before when it was at the o2 there seemed to be so much more at the o2 but we still had a great time as my partner had never been he was very interested in it all would reccomend this to my friends
May 19, 2019
As far as it goes it was excellent. It could be so much better if it was brought up to date Disappointing it was so dated Missed opportunity
May 12, 2019
Very interesting and informative. Well worth the ticket price. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
May 7, 2019
We took our grandchildren ages 18/14 they were absolutely amazed at the sights , and workings of the human body , we were all amazed
May 6, 2019
I am a theatre nurse but was bowled over by the detail gone to, to explain the bodies, I was so impressed with the health education side too. Would love to go again
May 5, 2019
Fantastic presentation of the body and how it works. The exhibits are just amazing, being able to see what the body is able to do on a daily basis is incredible and it’s shown to us in an easily accessible way so that everyone can learn what’s going on underneath their skin. I’d highly recommend it as it’s a fab day out for anyone and everyone.
Apr 28, 2019
Amazing, educational exhibition for both medical professionals and the general public. Bit clunky with the audio guides but did allow for the exhibition to be enjoyed at your own pace.
Apr 26, 2019
Wow! An amazing display of humans and what amazing animals we are. The audio guide and pint and click is an excellent educational tool for everyone.
Apr 13, 2019
Absolutely amazing visit to Body Worlds yesterday. To be able to see in intimate and intricae detail the workings of the human body was a priviledge. I felt the whole exhibition was sensitively put together. Sensitivities for age and culture were carefully considered and addressed, e.g reproductive section. I was particularly impressed about the focus on the psychological aspect of good health, and the importance of diet. The human body was considered systemically in terms of the need to focus on attitude, lifestyle, diet, exercise and how all of these need to be worked together to achieve optimal health. I came out of the exhibition with a renewed profound sense of gratitude and respect for these wonderful 'machines' we are lucky enough to have. I shall be going back as there was so much to observe and absorb!
Apr 9, 2019
I wasn’t too sure what to expect, I thought it may have been a bit morbid and emotional but I was completely wrong. It was an amazingly educational experience which has made me come away with a higher respect and a little more understanding of how my body works. I shall be retuning with more people 👍👍
Apr 5, 2019
The exhibition was excellent and the audio feed really enhanced the experience. It was nice to see there was seating, to take a break from the standing and walking. We enjoyed the interactive activities, BP, CPR and mood ball. It is an excellent way for a layman to learn more about the human body, but similarly interesting to professionals too, being able to see everything. Only disappointment was the VR where staff member was not ensuring the equipment was working properly, had to say something before assistance was offered, when the problem was evident on computer screen, and only two being used at the time. Otherwise brilliant visit.
Mar 25, 2019
I was totally engrossed for 3 hours - and look forward to returning. Well presented and I am so grateful to those who donated their bodies so that I could learn more about mine.
Mar 24, 2019
I thought it was fabulous
