Summer Diaries #6: Wax works and Wagamamas

The second day I spent in London started off with pancakes and lots of tea at the B&B we were staying in. After stuffing my face we walked up to the train station to start our second day of tourist stops.

Madame Tussades was the first stop of the day. I had been to it once before when I was little so I couldn’t really remember it at all. We queued up for about 40 minutes and I entertained my family for that time by googling Madame Tussade and we learnt all about who she was and how the attraction came to be. So that wasted some time. Once inside we all did what was expected at this attraction. Posed for photos, took selfies, poked the wax works. It was great. My favourite wax works were Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes and Barack Obama. There was so much more to it than I thought as they had a scary maze with live actors, a marvel superhero 4D cinema experience, and a taxi tour through the history of London that reminded me of the Small, Small World ride at Disney.

Whilst we were at the Tussades location it would have been crazy to walk past Baker Street without stopping to visit 221B. So we walked down and my mum and I had pictures outside the door, dressed with hats as Sherlock and Dr. Watson. We didn’t have time to go to the Sherlock museum so instead we settled for the gift shop where I bought a Baker Street street sign for my room and my sister bought me a key ring for when I get my car keys.

After Baker Street we got on the open top bus tour around all of the sites of London. This was then followed by a short trip to the Tower of London to look at all the poppies that have been placed there. We then boarded the river cruise which took us in the direction of Leicester Square. We then had dinner at Wagamamas, my favourite restaurant, which was delicious as always!
It was then back to the hotel to sleep and prepare for our last day.
