Welcome to the second part of ‘London in a Day’ Adventure!
Last week you read about ‘The First Few Landmarks’ my mum and I visited during our 12 hour stay in London this January - PEGGY PORSHEN cakes, the Westminster Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Wellington Arch and Hard Rock Café. If you haven’t, however, you could check them out here.
Today it is time to continue our trip with our visit to the museum, Madame Tussauds.
While I was planning our stay in London, I was quite reluctant about whether we should visit Madame Tussauds. I was worried if we would have enough time to enjoy all the halls in the museum and if it was worth paying for such expensive tickets. But, trust me, these two hours we spent in Madame Tussauds were some of the most amazing hours in my life and they were worth every penny!
As we neither wanted to, nor had the time to wait in a queue, we bought our tickets online. And those tickets led us to a unique place where we had the greatest fun.
I seriously doubt you will be surprised if I told you that, in Madame Tussauds, you could see waxworks of famous people, historic figures and popular film characters. But something which really was surprising was how long we had to wait to take a photo with the figures of people we like and admire as all the halls were packed with visitors. There were whole queues in front of some of them, especially in front of the Royal Family.
Still, we managed to take some photos. So, here I am with Leonardo DiCaprio:
And with Albert Einstein:
However, the most impressive part of our visit to Madame Tussauds was the British history tour. We sat in a traditional black cab while we were introduced to Britain as it was centuries ago with the figures of British monarchs and many more, including William Shakespeare, of course:
For the greatest fans, in Madame Tussauds you can now find a Star Wars exhibition. I, personally, am not one of these great fans. But don’t judge me because of that! Everybody has got those weird things about them! Yet, I still found the scenes very well recreated and all the characters extremely realistic:
Therefore, if there is someone famous or fictional you would love to meet, but you doubt you could in person, do pay a visit to Madame Tussauds. But, even if there isn’t such a certain someone, still, you won’t regret going there. This place has the ability to change the atmosphere around you so fast as if you are travelling through time and space.
The last part of our adventure - ‘Everything Left’ consists of a few more landmarks in London we visited the same day. This, however, is what I will be writing about in my next post. You have now followed us for seven hours during the ‘London in a Day’ Adventure. There is not too much to go through left!
