I said in a previous post that I had been to london for 4 days and I was going to post about each day, however I’ve been a bit behind on this due to my phone playing up, so finally here is day 2!
London Attraction Packages.
Here is a list of tourist attraction packages that could save you a fair bit, it did me!
- London Eye & Madame Tussaud’s ticket online package – £40 each. To buy on the day would cost you £50 each.
- Madame Tussaud’s & London Dungeons ticket online package – £45 each. To buy on the day would cost you £55 each.
- Madame Tussaud’s & London Aquarium ticket online package – £41 each. To buy on the day would cost you £51 each.

- Madame Tussaud’s & London Aquarium & London Dungeons & London Eye ticket online package – £58 each. To but on the day would cost you £97 each.
There is loads more packages with different combinations, I decided to go for the package which includes all 4 of them, as it was such a good price. What is good about about all these deals, is the fact it gives you 30 days to do them in. Below I’m going to post what I thought of the attractions, so if your interested, then read below. 🙂
The London Eye
I really loved the London Eye. Just before you go on, you can go into a 4D experience, which I don’t think really was needed, but as it was free I went to see it. So for the small amount of you who doesn’t know what the London Eye is, it’s a 30 minute long ride which allows you to see the most amazing and beautiful views of London. I’ve not been on it in the night time yet, but I would really recommend it, as I think this would be a breathtaking view.
The queue waiting time to go on was about 5 minutes. I think this is because your allowed up to 25 people per capsule, so there was no waiting around however I could of just been lucky, as I’ve been on it previous times with a bigger queue. Although if the queue does appear big, it is never as bad as it looks. Seeing as the capsule moves slow, there is lots of opportunities for you to take lots of photographs and take it all in. Personally I give this attraction 5/5, I think it’s an absolute must thing to do, if you haven’t come to London before.
The London Dungeon.
This was really fun and exciting. This felt so realistic throughout the whole experience and you forgot the actors were acting! Very factual and shocking when you find out what they did to Guy Fawkes. Scary in places but this made it all that little bit better. What also was good, is that the actors got different members of the group involved, and I didn’t even mention about the ride that makes you feel like you’ve been hung, at the end! 4.5/5 for me. The 0.5 knocked off is not for the attraction itself because I thought it was very good, but for the amount of queues you have to stand in before you enter.
Firstly the queues for this were really unorganised, and you couldn’t tell where to queue up because you couldn’t see where the queue ended. After that confusion, there was 14 different interactive zones, including a One Direction zone, Superheroes and sport etc. The wax works looked really good however good luck trying to get pictures of them, as it’s grabbing the chance when you’ve got it.
Considering we all had time slots on our tickets, there was about 3 time slots entering at the same time. I suppose that’s to be expected though, at such a popular attraction. I don’t know if I will bother going again due to all the pushing and shoving and over crowding, which is a shame as the wax works were good and I generally think I would of enjoyed it more, if it was more controlled. 3.5/5 from me, rather low, but it was just too busy for my liking.
