Photo Diary: A Wheelchair Accessible Tour Of Madame Tussauds London
One month and a half really went by so fast that my trip to London has become a nostalgic dream I drift into during endless conversations with clients and hours that drag out at work. It wasn’t so long ago that I was getting to know the vivid city for the second time, although it sure feels like it now. English breakfast at highly-rated bars before 10 am, trains in and out of boroughs my sister and I wished we could stay in a little longer, and a ridiculous December cold that remained frozen in my memory. Of course, I’ve told you all of this before in my previous posts in the past few weeks. I opened up my travel diaries to show you what it was like to explore London during the holiday season, then I took you with me on a stroll through Greenwich that was sadly too short but beautiful, nonetheless.
It was a long time coming, but on the last day of the trip, we finally got to visit the Madame Tussauds Museum. Not being able to access the premises because the lifts were not operating in the summer of 2018 was frustrating, to say the least. Yes, it was due to renovations and yes, they did offer access to the Marvel section which could be accessed on ground level, but the disappointment with not being able to access places buildings as a wheelchair user never gets less annoying honestly.
All this to say, it was a big deal for me to finally get to tour the infamous wax museum.
I know you guys really love pictures so as I promised at the end of that post, I’m bringing you some shots we took during our tour. if you want to read more in full about my experience, I did write a full recount two weeks ago. It covers my 2019 experience, my general thoughts about the museum itself and a few opinions on how I think accessibility could be improved – click here to read.
Now I’ll let the photographs do the talking…
Have you visited Madame Tussauds yet? How was your experience?
