The wax museum was incredible. It was much larger than I could have imagined. We spent the whole time taking turns taking photos with the figures. There was a 4D superhero movie and a horror maze (kind of like the halloween mazes at MovieWorld). There was a ride through the history of London that was fascinating and informative at the same time.
After the museum we hopped back onto the tube to Oxford Street. The home ...

wandered and caught the tube and wandered some more, stopping for
photos here and there. It was a simple, fantastic way to get out and
about, see some of London and gasbag away! We enjoyed a yummy (and
