Madame Tussaud’s – London

Visiting London’s Madame Tussaud’s is one of our to-do lists and after checking their website to buy tickets online, we decided that maybe it’s better if we buy from the counter so we won’t be pressured by the time indicated on our tickets. I mean, plans may always be changed and we may not know if we will have an early or late lunch on our first day in town.

After we settled in our hotel, freshen up and had our first meal of the day at the restaurant nearby, we picked up some things that we will need for the next days and finally, we went to Madame Tussaud’s.

Madame Tussauds outsideWe reached the museum at around 3 in the afternoon and we were assisted by the staffs who welcomed us at the entrance. The line was not that long but for some reason, we waited for more than 30 minutes before the counter opened and accommodated the visitors.  Must be that they were understaffed or something. Our ticket costs £30 each and it includes the Marvel Experience.

The museum was so big! I was excited to see everything and have photos with almost every wax figure.  With lots of pictures that I had, I will just share with you the highlights of our trip so as, not to overshare. 😀

For the figure of the Royale Couple (Kate and Will) and US President Obama, the museum has an official photographer and it will cost you an extra £10 for a close-up photo which you can redeem later when you go out of the souvenir shop. If my memory serves me right, the wax figure of Queen Elizabeth II is also covered by the museum’s exclusive photographers.

If I were to choose the standout wax figures in this museum, mt top five will be:

  1. Queen Elizabeth II
  2. The Royal Couple: Kate and Will
  3. Kate Winslet
  4. Nicole Kidman
  5. Daniel Craig

These figures just looked so real.

Cab Ride

The last part of our tour at the museum was a “cab ride” and as it moves along, a voice-over narrates the history of London. Some of the displays were animated and as you listen and watch the presentation of London’s history, you will have a better appreciation and understanding of their culture.

Berry’s Travel Tip:

Always be camera-ready. Towards the  mid-part of this segment, there will be cameras taking your photos and if you will get some of their souvenir items, you may choose the photos from those shots.

 

Fill your life with experiences, not things.  Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.
