Very expensive and really needs an overhaul, I was disappointed and the outside of the building is very grubby around it. It really needs to be lifted and cleaned up.

If your children like 'Horrible Histories' the tour downstairs will fascinate them with description of somewhat scary mediaeval tortures etc. The figures are all behind glass so you have no worries about letting your kids have a good look. Our grandson loved it. Warning there...More

This is definately a "must see" if you have never been to a wax works, and even if you have in other Countries.The layout and figures are "real" and sometimes a bit scary.Recommended.

One place that travellers must see. Can take photos. Be prepared to be there for a while as so much to see and read about. Thoroughly enjoyed it.They also do a tour downstairs which is worth going to do, allow plenty of time.
