Outside of Natural History Museum
For our second day we decided to go and check out Madam Tuessauds (a giant waxworks). Unfortuantely along with the slightly hefty price tag of £25 per person (i'd stupidly forgotten my Tesco 2 for 1 vouchers...) there was a two and a half hour queue to get in, which wasn't bad as there were a few entertainers outside intersting information plus a shop inside whilst queueing. I would highly recommend Madam Tuessauds to anyone thinking about visiting, they've also recently installed a new attraction called 'Scream' which involves walking through a dark tunneled area whilst actors basically jump out and scare you which is very fun.
Afterwards we decided to hit the Natural History Museum, compared to findning the British Museum the Natural History Museum was alot easier to find.
Harrods
If you'd only get the chance to visit one of these museums I would recommend the Natural History Museum its alot bigger and more interesting. With everything ranging from dinosaur fossils to a range of different animals. *A word of warning as i found out the hard way the glass covering some of the exhibits is alot closer than it looks, i found out this the hard way*.
After the Natural History Museum we decided to check out Harrods on our way for something to eat. If you didn't know Harrods is a giant department store selling everything from £1000 handbags to £1000 puppies. We felt very out of place browisng the 7 storey building but were amazed at the prices of some items you could easily pick up a cheap copy on the market.
