Our View

Madame Tussaud's world-famous wax figure collection was founded in Paris in 1770. It moved to England in 1802 and found a permanent home in London's Marylebone Road in 1884. The 21st century has brought new innovations and new levels of interactivity. The collection is divided into sections, including a Hollywood/Bollywood red carpet area; stars from the classic age of Hollywood; stars of field, track and pool; figures from history including kings, queens, politicians and world leaders; and music stars like The Beatles and Bob Marley. There is also a Scream section which includes a 'haunted house' area that has real actors intent on scaring you, and a collection of horrific figures from the past like Dr Crippen and Vlad the Impaler. There are also '4D' experiences, one which involves a taxi ride through the history of London and another which pits Marvel superheroes against Dr Doom's robot army in a 3D movie with added physical effects.

About the area

Discover London

The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.

London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
