Madame Tussauds, Sherlock Holmes Museum and Trafalgar Square

Funny, as a child, Madame Tussauds was THE attraction of London. It was the only attraction that could even kill my jetlag. When I was planning this trip too, I was half thinking why aren't we doing M.T much earlier. But we just had so many other things going on, that we kept it to twds the end. I'd booked tickets online, not that it helped. We went early, around 930am and there was hardly any rush. For some reason, I always thought it was much bigger! It looked quite small, the floor plan that is. I also thought that the model would just be next to one another, I was surprised to see backgrounds and stages, like for the Beckhams and I think Britney. My favourite Kylie was also there, although I hate the fact that she's not standing and it's tough to get a picture with her.
Lunch was at Pizza Express, great food! We then headed towards the Sherlock Holmes museum which IMHO is really boring even for a casual Holmes fan. I know tons of mates back in Dallas that would've killed to be in my shoes but I didn't get most of it. To me, it just looked like walking into a pensioner's small flat.
Rest of the evening was spent in relaxing at the hotel room, before we set out in the night for a lovely view of Trafalgar Square.
