Day out in London: Madame Tussauds and Town Adventures

Well hello to you my reader chums! The Saturday just gone (as you can probably tell by the title), I headed up to London town. For my twin Maria and I's birthday, our best friend Danielle treated us to  Madame Tussaud's tickets! After a very anticipating month waiting, the day arrived and all four of us were extremely excited (our best friend Chloe came along too!) We travelled up rather early that morning in order to have a little London adventure after visiting the attraction.  

Arriving early meant Madame Tussaud's wasn't crazily busy and we got to go round the exhibits at a slow and steady pace without the pushing and shoving of crowds. I have to admit when we initially entered the room with the wax works, we got a tad creeped out as they genuinely looked so real! Luckily, we got used to them quickly and found it absolutely fascinating how some wax models had an uncanny resemblance to the real celebrity! Not only was it filled with a vast collection of famous people, there were a couple of additional experiences we got to participate in. One of the more riveting activities was the Chamber of Horrors & Screams, which was a trail consisting of jumpy moments, scary music, all in a dark, eerie environment. Being quite a scared person I'm proud I got through it even though I was squeezing Chloe's hand the whole time! A more unique and fun encounter was the Marvel 4D cinema which all of us found absolutely thrilling! A ten minute film was shown where features like wind were blown at you and the props actually looked as if they were coming out of the screen, it was crazy stuff. The final experience was a charming London taxi ride showcasing London town's history. I loved this as there were a variety of puppets and different artwork which was a treat to watch. Through meeting all the top, a list celebrities, unique opportunities and capturing those exciting moments, we all had a truly phenomenal time. 

Here's all my favourite photos of Madame Tussaud's:

My favourite picture of them all! I finally got to meet the One Direction boys even if it was only the wax models. As you can see I was very enthusiastic to see Harry grabbing onto his arm!
Us with Cheryl- aka the next best girl band.

This is one of the funniest photos from the day, it really makes me smile! We were very excited/shocked to see Tom Daley as you can tell ;)

Once we saw the whole of Madame Tussauds, we headed back to Oxford Street and chose Bella Italia for lunch. The food was absolutely scrumptious, I shared a pesto and mozzarella bread with Chloe for starters, chose the lasagne for main and finished with the most gorgeous, authentic gelato, it was simply incredible. Since we were then all full, it was adventure time! Firstly, we went in a few shops on Oxford street, Topshop as it's genuinely the best Topshop I've been to and the exclusive Lush store which I adore, After a quick browse, we made our way to Camden as I'd never been before and had a look around all the quaint markets where I picked up a couple of tops. It was such a cute, picturesque setting and had a total different vibe about it to general central London.

Overall, I had a fantastic day! I want to say a big thank you to Danielle for taking us to Madame Tussauds and for planning such a fun filled day out. I'm genuinely so lucky to have the best friends I do and to spend these exciting, adventurous moments together.

I hope you enjoyed this lifestyle, day out post.

Thank you for reading <3
