Honestly, I didn’t expect to like Madame Tussaud’s but I was pleasantly surprised. I’d bought my ticket in conjunction with the London Eye so it was cheaper and gave ‘priority’ access thus I skipped the ‘on-the day’ ticket line. Very easy.

Tussaud’s features multiple galleries each with their own theme such as sports, politics and celebrity. There’s definitely a focus on the latter what with sections on movie, music and other stars.

Each room is quite well done and the characters are fairly realistic. There’s a display at the end of the tour that provides an overview of the wax works process.

What made the endless (albeit varied) array of models bearable was the use of a few ‘rides’ to break up the journey. One being a ‘black cab’ trip through the history of London and another is a ‘horror’ walk through a dungeon.

I rather liked walking around and taking photos of the famous and infamous but given the price and the other attractions in London I wouldn’t call it a priority.

Not clear in this pic but the girl's parents told her to salute. Apparently as a joke!
