4 reviews of Louis Tussauds House Of Wax in English
Ah. Um. Yes. Well...
As others have said, if you don't go expecting the quality associated with his great-grandmother, then it's possible to have a great time playing Guess Who at the House Of Wax before you see the names attached to each famous figure.
You do wonder if any of the celebrities featured would laugh or prosecute. Even Mussolini (in spite of death). My favourite was undoubtedly The Man in The Iron Mask – with the mask on, it was an uncanny resemblance.
Given how much fun you can have per pound of the entrance fee, you could actually argue that this is better value than Madame Tussauds.
Some friends and I went out of our way to seek out this little gem having seen a blog that boasted some of their worst look-a-likes. Don't be mistaken this does not contain particularly accurate models of public figures but it is very, very funny.
To be fair some of them are pretty good and there's a wide range of them from various eras, but the Michael Owen is famously bad and the Ian Botham next to him is like a shop display manikin with a mustache.
I would warn parents to think twice about taking their children into the torture chamber section as there's some pretty grizzly things in there.
Overall highly entertaining though.
Yes, the waxworks aren’t the best, but that’s part of the appeal of going to Louis Tussauds in Great Yarmouth.
Part of the fun in going is trying to guess who some of the waxworks are (here’s a tip - if you don’t know much about the 1980’s you might struggle slightly!)
If you don’t expect the flashy slickness of the tourist traps in London, you should have a laugh at this place!
One point is that you aren’t allowed to take photographs to show people when you get how. They’re probably scared people will see how unrealistic they are!
They auctioned some of the old heads recently and made a few quid, but someone left Paul McCartneys head on a train. It was later found by a tramp.
Much has been made of the supposedly poor quality of the waxworks at Great Yarmouth’s answer to that overpriced tourist trap in the capital. However, I choose to look upon this feature positively and you can have a great deal of fun in the process. Try to ignore the name tags and guess amongst yourselves who that is. Great laughter will erupts when you find out that the Beach Boys are actually a group of past Prime Ministers. A nice bonus is the vintage arcade at the end of the museum, with pinball tables and other classic games. So, visit the waxworks with an open mind and you are sure to have a good time. Honest.
