Despite being terribly overpriced and overcrowded, Madame Tussaud's still remains one of the most popular fun places to visit in London. The biggest attraction is that you can get a photo with your favourite celebrity which, if you so wish, you can have printed on a mug or a mouse mat.
DAY 5 - Friday, December 28, 2012
Although many people think that Madame Tussaud's is kitsch and shamelessly commercial, both Alkis and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and had so much fun taking photos with various wax celebrities. The wax figures look so real! I didn't like the Chamber of Horrors and had to use the escape exit but I loved the wonderful journey to the past and the spirit of London.
After this memorable visit at Madame Tussaud's, we had lunch at a pub in Central London and shared Ploughman's Platter.
To tie up the day, we had dinner at La Strada in Holborn.
On our way back to the hotel, we made plans about the next day and we agreed that we'd never miss a visit to the British Museum and a long walk in Hyde Park before flying back home.
