Established in 1884 Madame Tussauds is a must-see attraction right in the heart of London. Set inside a world of glitz and glamour, this museum allows you to rub shoulders with some of the world’s most famous faces. With around 300 wax work figures now on display, the impressive collection ranges from heart-throbs Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch to Hollywood Greats Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chapman. It’s not often you can say that one attraction has something for everyone but Madame. T really does!
Your tweens will go crazy for selfies with Beiber and 1Direction. There’s a whole host of Royal Family members to pose next to; including William and Kate. For literature buffs there’s Charles Dickens and even an Albert Einstein figure (great way to get the kids interested in Science!). New wax works are being created all the time so that the collection is fresh and current with lots of new talent on show. Be sure to check out the famous Olympians on your way round, Jessica Ennis is very lifelike.
Other highlights include a classic ET (of course riding his iconic bike), legendary Robin Williams (who is incredibility lifelike) and enough Star Wars characters to satisfy even the most die-hard fan. If Kanye’s your thing he’s at the ready for a photo along with selfie-queen Kim K if you can face the long ques.
Spirit of London Ride
Journey through London’s history from the comfort of an iconic black cab. Discover historical and cultural events that shaped this city. Revisit the Tudors, witness streets riddled with the plague and relive the Great Fire of London. Whizz through Churchill’s war stricken Britain. Then experience the dazzling lights of the 60’s before disembarking your black taxi in the 80’s.
The verdict; Madame Tussauds is perfect for a family day out, a first visit to London or a children’s party. Located in Baker Street, Central London, it is an all-singing, all-dancing waxworks experience. Not only are some of the models so lifelike they look as if they’re going to move any second; there’s also a whole host of interactive attractions to help continue the fun. About 2/2.5 hours should be ample time to allow for your visit. Just remember the museum is jam packed with photo-opportunities so whatever you do- don’t forget your camera!
