Marie Tussaud, a former art teacher at the court of Louis XVI, moved her wax museum of famous and historical figures and horrific relics of the French Revolution from Paris to London in 1835. Nowadays there are long lines at the door on peak days, with a waiting time of more than 2 hours.
In addition to a wax museum, with images of all the greats and stars of the past and present, Madame Tussauds has increasingly become an interactive amusement park.
Madame Tussauds is more than worth a visit. Be on time, otherwise the line can be up to the Baker Street Underground station.
