About Madame Tussauds London
Madame Tussauds London is one of the capital's top tourist attractions. Located on Marylebone Road within the heart of the city centre, visitors can get up close and personal with more than 150 startlingly lifelike wax sculptures of today's biggest celebrities along with historical figures, heroes, sporting greats and many more.
Founded in 1835, Madame Tussauds now welcomes over 10 million guests each year at 23 locations around the globe. It all started in London when 16-year-old Marie Tussaud sculpted her first waxwork of the French writer Voltaire. Later, during the French Revolution, she had the gruesome task of creating death masks for those killed by the guillotine.
There are 15 interactive areas in Madame Tussauds London to make memories with family and friends. Party with A-listers like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, strike a super hero pose with characters from the Marvel Universe and join the Royal family in the most regal of settings. Plus use The Force to be transported to a galaxy far, far away and get in on the lightsaber battles in the Star Wars universe.
For music lovers, plenty of megastars are here too and ready to pose. Be part of the world's hottest girl band Little Mix in a recreation of the Bounce Back video set, stand beside Stormzy at Glastonbury and channel your inner diva next to Queen Bey or Dua Lipa. You can even get a snap strolling the famous Abbey Road zebra crossing with The Beatles.
More than just a wax museum, Madame Tussauds combines glitz, glamour and incredible history – while bringing stars to life in mind-blowingly accurate detail!
