Our Visit to Madame Tussauds Blackpool

We went on a family outing to Madame Tussauds Blackpool while we were in the area on holiday, and we spent a good few hours there. The tour lasts around 90 minutes, but if you want to take your time and get photos with all of your favourite celebrities and stop off for some food and a drink along the way, then you can easily spend between 2 and 3 hours here. 

This was our first Madame Tussauds experience, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. As a family between the ages of 12 and 43, there really was something here for everyone to enjoy. One of the highlights for the adults was stopping for a pint in the Rovers Return Pub, but I also squealed like a child when we walked into the Doctor Who section. 

We didn’t have food there, but the prices were what you would expect from an attraction, while not being too unreasonable. Something else that was really convenient is that it’s not far from other attractions, like Sea Life. Overall, we would all highly recommend visiting Madame Tussauds Blackpool during your stay.
