Madame Tussauds Blackpool One Direction

The stars at Madame Tussauds Blackpool.

On our recent trip to Blackpool we paid a visit to Madame Tussauds. We’d heard that someone rather famous, and very very important was going to be there, so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to meet them… πŸ˜‰ We’ve visited Tussauds in London previously, and whilst it is undoubtedly a spectacular day trip, it is massively busy, which can be a bit stressful with young children. Madame Tussauds Blackpool was refreshing though; all the wow of the same stars, without such a big crowd. We did still have to queue up to see this lot, but hey, that’s all part of the fame-hunting, isn’t it?

We spent a long time in the sporting section, winning Olympic gold with Mo Farah, doing sit-ups with David Beckham, and wondering who on earth the darts players were. The main draw for the Bug though, was the trophy, and I won’t tell you what he said to Wayne Rooney about his World Cup performance, although he may have a slight dent in his shin now…

Next up the hall of music fame, and GG got a makeover that was, quite frankly, terrifying! I can’t wait for the teenage years to come. (I really can..).

I breathed a sigh of relief as we headed into the next room and the stars became a little less risquΓ©.

If you’re taking a trip to Blackpool I’d definitely recommend stopping off at Madame Tussauds. It’s a really fun afternoon for all ages, easy to get round, and right in the middle of the rest of Blackpool’s action, so perfect for families.
