Madame Tussauds information
Madame Tussauds offers photo ops for days with your dream celebrity at the A-List Party (Daniel Craig, Lady Gaga, George Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham), the Bollywood gathering (Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan) and the Royal Appointment (the Queen, Harry, William and Kate). If you’re into politics, get up close and personal with Barack Obama or even London Mayor Boris Johnson.
The life-size wax figures are often remarkably lifelike (eg Daniel Craig, Liza Minelli) buit not always (David Beckham, Marilyn Monroe) and are as close to the real thing as most of us will get. It's interesting to see which are the most popular; nobody wants to be photographed with Richard Branson or Any Winehouse (RIP) , but Prince Harry and Michael Jackson (RIP again) do a brisk trade.
Honing her craft making effigies of victims of the French revolution, Marie Tussaud brought her wares to England in 1802. Her Chamber of Horrors still survives (complete with the actual blade that took Marie-Antoinette's head), but it's now joined by Scream, where actors lunge at terrified visitors in the dark. The Spirit of London ride through the city's history is wonderfully cheesy.
Tickets are cheaper when ordered online; combined tickets with London Eye (adult/child £50/38) and London Dungeon (£55/45) are also available.
