Madame Tussauds | What You'll See:
Is it to receive an audience with the British Royal Family, to share in a stirring duet with Freddie Mercury, or even grapple with the Incredible Hulk? Whatever your interest, be it global politics or pop culture you'll get a kick out of this world famous wax museum. Below is a list of exhibitions and attractions currently open to the public:
Star Wars Experience:
To celebrate the coming of a new era in the Star Wars film universe Madame Tussauds London has teamed up with Lucasfilm to bring iconic characters and scenes from Episodes I-VI to a discerning public. Do battle with a corrupted Anakin Skywalker on the volcanic surface of Mustafar, witness the duel of fates between Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Maul, and place a hand over Han Solo's shoulder in the Mos Eisley Cantina.
Marvel Super Heroes:
Step into a world of comic book heros in the Marvel zone. Most of the models are based on the actors/actresses who're currently portraying them on the big screen. See Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
Bask in the glamour of the red carpet as you make your way to an exclusive soirée with the stars. Mingle with A-list celebrities including Benedict Cumberbatch, Morgan Freeman, David and Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian and more.
Experience the behind-the-scenes workings of a major international fashion event. You'll meet Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kendall Jenner backstage and catch a glimpse of what's involved in preparing for the catwalk. Afterwards you'll have a chance to strut your own stuff atop the runway with model/actress, Cara Delevingne.
As the best known and most glamorous institution in India's burgeoning film industry it's little wonder that the stars command huge international appeal. Meet legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan, contemporary heartthrob Hrithik Roshan, as well as actresses Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Katrina Kaif.
It's one thing to meet the stars of your favourite big screen blockbuster, and another to step into the story world itself. Sail across the moonlit sky with E.T., have breakfast with Audrey Hepburn on the set of her award winning Breakfast at Tiffany's, and see how you measure up against Arnie's Terminator.
Many of today's entertainers got their break on the world's biggest video sharing website, including two of Britain's most popular vloggers, Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes. Step into an exact replica of their personal 'vlogsphere' and meet the pair's uncanny life-sized wax lookalikes.
You've seen them take gold on the world stage, you've felt their grit and determination through a camera's lens, now stand shoulder to shoulder with some of Britain and the world's most iconic sports personalities. Strike a pose with Mo Farah, stare down former world heavyweight champion Mohammed Ali, and hold the flag with British Olympic track athlete Jessica Ennis-Hill.
What would a trip to London be without an audience with the Royal Family? Okay, maybe the gates of Buckingham Palace are as close as you and me can expect to get, but at least Madame Tussauds can get us part way with its detailed wax models of Queen Lizzie and co.
The culture zone is where you can have a chin wag with some of history's greatest minds. Meet famous literary figures such as Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare, seminal artists Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh, and geniuses past and present from Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking. Another interesting figure is the woman who started it all, Marie Tussaud. Here you'll find her making anti-royalist wax models using decapitated victims of the French Revolution as a base. She can also be spotted on the 'Spirit of London' ride.
Get up close to your favourite band or singer in the music zone. Stand with the artists who redefined their genre, from Michael Jackson to Freddie Mercury, and meet modern mega stars such as Lady Gaga, Madonna and Adele.
From contemporary UK politicians to Nelson Mandela and US civil rights leader Martin Luther King, the world leaders zone is where you can strike a pose, silly or serious, with some of the most powerful and influential people in the world.
Spirit of London Ride:
Climb into one of London's famous black cab taxis and embark on a journey through significant moments in the capital's history. You'll experience the sights and sounds of Elizabethan England, witness the devastation of the plague and Great Fire, then transition into the Stuart period, when St Paul's Cathedral was still under construction. The ride rolls on through the Georgian, Victorian and World War periods into the swinging 60s, eventually letting passengers off in the 1980s.
