The world's best foodie train journeys
Madame Tussauds, London
What better way to spend a holiday than to queue up for hours to gaze at big lumps of wax that look vaguely like footballers or members of the EastEnders cast? Pretty much anything, says Melissa Shales, a freelance journalist and the chair of the British Guild of Travel Writers.
She explains: "I live very near Madame Tussauds and regularly go past queues stretching around the block as hapless tourists wait for hours to pay through the nose to stare at waxwork models of celebrities.
"Why? I could possibly understand it in the days before mass media, but now? When those same celebrities fill our screens morning, noon and night, actually moving, speaking and singing?"
