Fancy some refreshments? A Royal afternoon tea is now available at Madame Tussauds London. For £15 you can enjoy tea with a selection of sandwiches, pastries, and scones in an indoor garden modelled on Buckingham Palace. Plus you’ll also get to snap a selfie with a more relaxed model of Her Majesty the Queen!

It’s not a stuffy museum - most of the waxworks can be touched, hugged or kissed, so don’t be afraid to get up close to your favorite stars!
On really busy days the queues can take up to 2 hours, so seriously consider getting fast track tickets during the summer months or school holiday! And definitely buy tickets in advance - you’ll save money and be able to skip the ticket lines.
Consider getting a combo ticket if you’re intending to visit either SEA LIFE London Aquarium, the Coca-Cola London Eye, Shrek’s Adventure or the London Dungeon - they’re all owned by Merlin Entertainments, so some great deals are available.

Who was Madame Tussaud?

Marie Tussaud (formerly Marie Grosholtz) was born in Strasbourg, France, in 1761. After her father’s death, she and her mother moved in with a doctor named Philippe Curtius, who founded a waxwork modeling company in Paris and trained Marie in the art of making waxworks. From 1780 until the beginning of the French Revolution Marie made famous portraits of celebrities including Benjamin Franklin and Voltaire, but as someone who’d worked for the royal family, she was arrested during the Reign of Terror and was only saved from execution when she agreed to make death masks of those who had been guillotined. She first came to London in 1802 to show some of her pieces but ended up stuck because the Napoleonic Wars had broken out and the journey back to France became impossible. Instead, she and her son toured Britain, eventually settling in London and founding the first Madame Tussauds waxwork museum, just down the road from the current premises! After her death in 1850, her son carried on her work and the museum stayed under the management of her children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren until the 1930s. Today there are 23 locations worldwide, each with their own local collections of waxworks. Madame Tussauds London still owns several of Marie Tussaud’s original waxworks, but they’re rarely displayed. Read more.

What’s the Marvel Superheroes 4D experience?

The Marvel Superheroes 4D experience takes place in the 3-story auditorium and brings to life some of your favorite superheros through a combination of 4D animation, interactive themed areas, and realistic wax figures. You’ll feel the wind in your hair and the rumble under your feet as the Hulk, Ironman, Captain America, and Spiderman save London from destruction! Entry to the 4D experience is included in your ticket. Read more.

How long should I spend there?

You should take at least 2 hours to walk through Madame Tussauds London, including taking the Spirit of London ride, which takes you on a tour of 400 years of the city’s history.

If you haven’t booked skip-the-line tickets then allow some extra time for queuing at the entrance. Read more.

Can I take photographs?

Absolutely! The only areas of the building where you can’t take photographs are in the Sherlock Holmes Experience and in the Marvel Super Heroes 4D experience. Some of the exhibits are specifically designed for photography and cameras, and camera phones are very welcome.

Is it suitable for children?
