Now's your chance to gate-crash an A-list party and mingle with the stars at Madame Tussauds.

If you've never heard of Madame Tussauds before then it's a big collection of waxwork people. You walk around the rooms for three hours and look at lifelike models of famous film stars, pop stars, sport stars, politicians, historical people, Royalty, and people off the telly. You can get close to practically all of them, pose for a photo, and then try and fool your friends back home that you met them for real.

Want a picture with Elvis? Donald Trump? Princess Diana? Justin Bieber? They're all here.

They've got a lot of Star Wars stuff as well. You'll be able to visit the swamps of Dagobah (where Yoda lived), Jabba the Hut's Throne Room (and yes -- with Princess Leia!), and the flight deck of the Millennium Falcon. You can even sit next to Han in the Mos Eisley cantina and discover once and for all who shoots first (it was definitely Han -- I don't care what George Lucas says). You'll also be able to meet Luke, Chewie, Darth Vadar, that old rust-bucket R2D2, and plenty more of your favourite characters (...no news yet on whether Jar Jar Binks will be there).

One of the most popular sections is the Chamber of Horrors. This bit uses waxwork models and actors to scare the living daylights out of you... you'll be walking through a dark and abandoned maximum security prison, which has just been taken over by its mental inmates!

After that comes the Spirit of London ride: a black taxicab trawl through five centures of the city's history, witnessing everything from the Great Fire of London to the Swinging Sixties.

Everyone who comes to London ends up going here, because it's one of the most popular attractions in town. But why? Well... that's another question. We definitely recommend having a good read of Craig's review of Madame Tussauds before you go, to see what he thought. This place is definitely an acquired taste, and the high cost of it might put you off -- so make sure you know what it is before you go. Feel free to ask Craig a question before you go, or post a question on the forum.

 Guest – “Hi2 adults and 2 children visiting Madame Tussauds soon. As we are coming by train we are eligible for the 2 for 1 offer - can this be booked in advance online? Or will we have to queue??ThanksDenise”

Admin – “It appears that you can book it online. You should do it through the 2for1 website, though — .daysoutguide.co.uk/2for1-londonHave a read of their instructions, because it's not as simple as just booking it. You need to download their voucher and remember to take along your paper train ticket on the day.”
