Madam Tussauds – first visit in YEARS – March 2013

Recently I took my family up to Madam Tussauds in London(Nearest Tube station is Baker Street – made famous by the late, great Gerry Rafferty). It used to house the London Planetarium which was always worth a visit, but sadly that seems to have disappeared into the mists of time.

We pre-booked our tickets via the internet and had to specify a half hour slot to collect them which is actually the time you are allowed to enter. First word of warning – it took us a good 40 minutes of queuing(we chose 2pm) to GET our tickets. Also to note.. the earlier in the day you go the more expensive it is.

Once we got inside, the exhibits are laid out in a number of zones (the whole tour, including Scream, took us about an hour and a 1/4). Some of the ‘models’ were very lifelike, some less so. All the expected celebs and politicians were there.. way too crowded in the main, with a little bit of crowd ‘presure’. Scream was ok, but I felt a bit over-hyped.


Top Tip if you’re visiting London – the tube is GREAT, but in Central London, its often quicker and more fun to walk – nothing is very far.
