I never understood how it remained so popular for so long. Most of the waxworks looked nothing like the people they were supposed to be. At least not in my opinion. Then again, I last went there in the 1960s.
Best wishes, Pete.
If you queue up outside you’re standing in the most polluted place in London, so as a bonus you’ll start on the road to emphysema.
