If you can't get an 'access all areas' to Hollywood, you can still come face to face with the stars at Madame Tussauds. Established back in 1835 and at its current site on Marylebone Road since 1884, the museum holds waxworks from the world of movies, sport, music, politics and even royalty. In recent years, the ropes that blocked off the waxworks were taken down and now, visitors can walk up close to all of the models and get a good look, take photos and interact with them. Madame Tussauds was also once the site of the London Planetarium, now located in Greenwich, but this has now made way for the Marvel Super Heroes 4D, which uses 4D animation, interactive themed areas and wax figures in the three-floor domed auditorium. Other local attractions in Marylebone include the upmarket High Street, which is lined with chic cafes and shops, while London Zoo is located in the nearby Regent's Park.
