Madame Tussauds London
Millions and millions of people have flocked through the doors of Madame Tussauds since they first opened over 200 years ago and it remains just as popular as it ever was.

Today’s visitors are sent on a unique, emotionally-charged journey through the realms of the powerful and famous. The museum-style ropes and poles have gone so guests can truly get up, close and personal with A-list celebrities, sporting legends, political heavyweights and historical icons, reliving the times, events and moments that made the world talk about them….

So, who do you want to meet?
Tower of London
One of the most famous buildings in the world, the Tower of London was constructed in the 11th century – almost a 1,000 years ago and has been witness to countless significant events in the development of Britain’s now democratic monarchy.
During your tour of the Tower of London you will meet the magnificent Yeoman Warders or ‘Beefeaters’, clad as they were in Tudor times, hear the legend of the ravens and spine chilling tales from the Tower’s long history. See the infamous Bloody Tower where the Princes were murdered, Beauchamp Tower where visitors can read carved inscriptions of past prisoners and Traitors Gate where those unlucky enough not to survive imprisonment had their heads impaled – and much more.
We sell at less than the gate price, which gives you access to all the Towers and Attractions, as well as the unique Gift Shops, the historic New Armouries Restaurant, Tower Cafe and Kiosk. Your Tower ticket also includes entry to the Crown Jewels.

This award-winning Horror London walk by qualified researcher and former professional actor Declan McHugh is now in its seventh year. The walk took years of research and covers sites connected with London’s dark past including places associated with grave robbers, serial killers (including Jack the Ripper), secret tunnels, witchcraft and conspiracy. The Blood & Tears Walk has received absolutely stunning reviews from thousands of visitors from every part of the globe as well as from school parties and corporate firms. For the second year running it has been awarded “One of London’s 10 Best walks” status by 10Best.com, an independent organisation which reviews attractions across the world and picks the best ten or less in any category. The walk takes place eight times a week – details are on the booking form.
‘Hot Tickets’ magazine (circulation: 400,000) – “A real treat… impressive… truly fascinating… a bargain… You won’t regret it”
Jon Miles, Head of European Operations, Commonwealth Bank of Australia – “Great fun – thoroughly enjoyed it”.
Ute Flossbach, German teacher – “Brilliant…thrilling stories”.
Annalena Glader, Organiser, Swedish Junior Chamber of Commerce – “Very good and spooky”.
Please note that Children under the age of 12 are not permitted on this tour. Also add on at least another 20 minutes to your journey if travelling by tube due to the temperamental circle line. The walk takes around 1h45 and starts from outside the only exit at Barbican underground station, which is two stops away from Kings Cross station on the Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City lines, and finishes conveniently at Holborn underground station.
Your tour guide, Declan McHugh, meets you at street level outside the only exit at Barbican underground station. You will recognise him by The Walk sign and the leaflets he will be holding.
VERY IMPORTANT TRAVEL ADVICE
It is extremely important that you allow sufficient time for your journey to arrive in good time for the walk. Tip: Count the underground stops between your starting point and Barbican then allow 4 minutes per stop plus 20 minutes. Declan can only wait a few minutes for latecomers so as not to inconvenience those who arrived at the correct time. If you arrive early there is a snackbar next to the station.
Dress warmly and bring an umbrella in spring, autumn and definitely winter! Many people who are either not used to London weather, or who are extreme optimists, end up either not bringing an umbrella (and wishing they had) or wearing unsuitable clothing which means they end up feeling cold – particularly if they come on any of the night walks on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights.
