Tussaud’s Visitors Pass

21st Sep, 2010 |

If you are heading to the UK and London, then you probably want to make the most of it. If you are planning on going to two or more of the following attractions, then it pays to get yourself an annual ticket. Just the price of 2 visits will cover the cost of the annual pass and it means you can use and use again. From the 3rd visit onwards, it is all savings. Depending on the attractions, you can even start saving on your second visit. Makes serious sense to consider getting one.

Guy Fawkes – Bon Fire Night

5th Nov, 2008 |

Guy Fawkes was a member of a Roman Catholic group who planned to blow up parliament to dissolve the regime. As a result we celebrate the 5th November as Bon Fire Night. Many Places through huge firework displays and Theme Parks often have special nights.

Children often dress up a “guy” and will ask for a penny for the guy. It is traditional to give them some money.

Much has been done to celebrate this day including having verses written. The most popular perhaps being:-

“Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.”

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Today is Halloween and although in the Uk we do not celebrate it anywhere like they do in the USA, we do have our features. Check out our Theme Parks and Bars for Halloween Festivities.

Spamalot – Monty Pyton

15th Oct, 2008 |

If you are a Monty Pyton fan then you should go to watch Spamalot. Spamalot is lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Pyton and the Holy Grail and is a new musical directed by Mike Nichols. And honestly, it has nothing to do with Spam!!

It is side grippingly funny, that even when I went (and was not in a particularly good mood) left with my sides aching from the silliness! This was a year ago and I still smile when I think about it. I would happily watch again.


Phantom of the Opera

9th Oct, 2008 |

The Phantom of the Opera is one of the best Musicals ever. If you have not seen it, then you must make a point of going. If you only ever watch one show on Broadway / in the West End, then it really should be The Phantom of the Opera.

It is known for being the World’s most haunting Love Story. (Don’t take your girlfriend there if you don’t want her to fill up with wedding ideas – Just Kidding!)

It is an Andrew Lloyd Webber production which opened today 23 years ago and is still going strong, which goes to show just how good it is. It is currently playing at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Haymarket, London – SW1Y 4QL.

It won’t be on forever, so book your tickets now!

London Planetarium

1st Aug, 2008 |

If you have a little time, a visit to the London Planetarium is a must. The London planetarium is a part of the Tussaud Group and is truly an out of this world experience. If you have ever looked up at the sky and wondered…. then you really must take some time out of your busy schedule to fit in a visit.

The British Museum

20th Jul, 2008 |

If you are interested in history and culture, a visit to The British Museum should be included in your stay. They are open daily from 10 am till 5.30 pm and open later on Thurdays and Fridays.

You might be interested to know that it is actually free to visitors and features a huge showcase ofexhibits. You should try to include time to at least see the following:-

  • The Rosetta stone
  • The Mummies
  • The stone handaxe from 800,000 BC

You might be interested to know that they offer children’s packs called the Back Pack & Family Trails which can make it fun for children. Be aware that if you don’t plan it, you can easily be surprised that the whole day has passed and there is still more for you to see.

Last but not least, you are sure to want some souvenirs from The British Museum, and if you do not fancy having to trudge around London with all your souvenirs, you can actually order them online and have them delivered directly to you.

Madame Tussaud’s Berlin

9th Jul, 2008 |

Madame Tussaud’s has opened in a new city – Berlin. I am sure it will be as great a hit as the original Madame Tussaud’s in London.
