Madame Tussauds

I took Star to London yesterday for a long promised trip to Madame Tussauds. We endured a packed train to get there, but once we arrived she became a pirate ...

And narrowly escaped the Incredible Hulk ...

She led the Tour de France ...

Made a public appearance with George Bush and Tony Blair ...

And even met Pope John Paul II ...

A couple of tips for anyone in the UK thinking of visiting. Using Tesco Clubcard vouchers counts as pre-paid entry and allows you to jump the queue. It also avoids having to pay a ludicrously large entrance fee. At mid-day during half-term the queue is long (they were estimating 2 hours when we arrived). Pushchairs are not allowed, but they will provide a baby carrier for a small deposit. Being practiced ring sling users we were fine and felt rather smug. And if, like me, you are a forty something ... it is all rather different to how it was when we were nine!
