Museum with Victorian decor in the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous fictional detective
The best example of living period costume I have come across! Absolutely everyone was in character! After giving the introduction, the butler was asked if Sherlock Holmes was real, and he kindly explained that the museum was there to help build the story. Brilliant experience and highly recommend!!
Sherlock Holmes fans will find the museum easily accessible at the end of the Metropolitan Line.
“Madame Tussauds is a great place to get your picture taken with lifelike celebrities. The wax figures are incredibly realistic! I would say this is one of the must see attraction in London.”
“Founded by the illegitimate son of the 4th Marquess of Hertford, who, on his death, left his mansion and collection to the nation, on the proviso that nothing was ever sold or lent out for an exhibition, so you can always bank on turning up and finding the Titian, Rembrandt and Velazquez paintings in situ. It’s also very strong on Sevres china, French furniture and armour and - this is very much an acquired taste - wax sculptures. The location is a winner too, being central, set back from Oxford Street and close to Selfridges. A delightful cafe draws in locals from tony Marylebone. ”
“The Regents Park was designed in 1811 by renowned architect John Nash and includes stunning rose gardens. The park is the largest outdoor sports area in London catering for football, softball, rugby and it also has a cricket pitch.”
“"Howzat?" Awaken the sportsman or woman in you by visiting Lords for what could be a sensational "innings" of excitement. Let's hope it doesn't rain. ”
“Have you ever wanted to hang out with all of the celebs and royals all at one time? Perhaps not, but here at Madame Tussauds you can do exactly that. It's weird but it works and is not to be missed.”
