Jennifer goes to the British Isles – More of London

Last week, in Jennifer goes to the British Isles, I shared a little about my trip to the British Isles and promised more from my first stop, London.

London was so much fun and it is easy to get around. I spent a lot of time on the Tube and took the double decker buses all over. If you want to experience the real London, I highly recommend making use of the public transportation.

Taking various buses around, I was able to visit the Globe Theater, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye. I even went to the Supreme Court. I guess that’s the lawyer coming out in me.

While I saw many of the usual tourist attractions, I couldn’t leave London without a stop at Madame Tussauds. If you’ve ever been to a Madame Tussauds, you know how amazing it is. The wax figures look real. I spent a couple of hours or more at Madame Tussauds posing with the figures. Below are some of the photos I took.

Have you visited Madame Tussauds? If you have, who was your favorite celebrity to pose with? My favorite was George Clooney.

    I visited the Madame Tussaud’s in DC this summer. My favorite picture I took was with Johnny Depp but it was better meeting him in person when he was filming Edward Scissor Hands. Great college days! All the wax figures of the presidents were awesome too!

        Well they were filming at an old 50’s looking Publix that day and at the end of the day he signed some autographs for us. I still have my little piece of paper I scrounged around to find that he signed. My daughters love that story! He certainly is cool across the ages! But as my one daughter says if only she could have that experience with Harry Styles from 1D her life would be complete! I guess we’ll have to find his wax figure.;)

        That’s a great story! Harry Styles is in London with the rest of 1D. They have them sitting on bleachers and you can sit with them and have your picture taken.
