Madame Tussauds is a fun filled solo activity the weather can’t spoil. Mingle with sports stars, celebrities and the Royal family. Get up close for photo shoots, selfies and finish off with a ride through The Spirit of London…
Madame Tussauds, Marylebone Road, London NW15LR – closest tube is Baker Street
Opening times vary throughout the year so check the website before coming along.
Booking online is £3 cheaper than purchasing tickets on the door. Over 16s pay £27 entrance fee. However, combining Madame Tussauds with another attraction from the Tussauds Group may be more cost effective. Other attractions include The London Eye, Shrek’s Adventure, London Dungeons, The Big B Tour and Sealife London Aquarium. If you plan on going along to 2 or more of these attractions then it is worth buying a combined ticket. Tickets for the other attractions will be valid for 90 days after purchasing the Madame Tussauds ticket.
