Visitors to the exhibition will even get the opportunity to take control of the Millennium Falcon’s flight deck.
With roots reaching back to Paris in the 1770s, Madame Tussaud found her fame modelling wax likenesses on the revolutionary Paris roads. After moving to London in the 1800s, Madame Tussaud established a permanent base in the Baker Street Bazaar in 1834. Nowadays Madame Tussauds is situated on Marylebone Road, where it has been since 1884.
Home to some of the most lifelike wax statues in the world, Madame Tussauds collection ranges from Hollywood to Bollywood, to the royal family, sports stars and beyond, and is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the capital.
It is much easier to book ahead online and beat the queues; an adult ticket costs £31 and a child’s ticket is £25. However, admission to the Star Wars Experience is also included in a standard entry Madame Tussauds ticket.
