London is a great city for celebrity spotting, but if you can’t see them in the flesh, the next best thing is Madame Tussauds, one of London’s top attractions. Get up close to all your favourite stars (recreated as life-like wax models) at this famous wax-museum.
Highlights include the party area, featuring big stars such as Angelina Jolie, Robert Pattinson and Johnny Depp. Not only that, you can see the world’s biggest sports stars, movie icons, world’s leaders and even the royals within this fun-packed museum. We recommend the Spirit of London Ride where you’ll hop in a black cab amusement ride and drive through London’s history. After all that, you might be wondering how it’s all done. Well, the museum will satisfy your curiosity with a behind-the-scenes look at how the wax figures are made by talented sculptors. Why not grab yourself a great deal by choosing mix and match tickets to combine your visit with London’s other top attractions?
If you choose a cheap hotel near Madame Tussauds, you’ll find plenty more to do in and around Marylebone. For a spot of shopping, head to Marylebone Village which has become a favourite with foodies. The village streets are filled with independent boutiques so you can hunt for top-end fashion or luxury gifts in a tranquil and picturesque setting. You’ll also find top-quality specialist cheese and chocolate shops here. And, if that’s not enough, bustling Marylebone Food Market held on Sundays is a great place to pick up seasonal produce and gourmet treats. Or, you can dive into Alfie’s Antiques Market to rummage through a treasure trove of vintage fashion, accessories, furniture and more.
Marylebone is sandwiched between two of London’s best parks, giving you ample opportunity to amble around. While Hyde Park has lots of open space and more than 4,000 trees, slightly smaller Regent’s Park features stunning rose gardens and a massive outdoor sports area. While you’re in the park you can pop into London Zoo to see your favourite animals. Choose hotels near Madame Tussauds to be close to Marylebone’s attractions.
