There are few Hollywood stars who are as famous for their looks as Robert Pattinson. The British actor is best known for playing the character Edward Cullen in the ‘Twilight’ series, and his filmography also includes ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1′ and ‘Twilight Eclipse.’
In addition to his movie roles, Pattinson’s fashion style has made him a popular subject for artists and photographers. Many have dressed him in extravagant costumes and set him in front of iconic locations for a night of photo-bombing. Unfortunately, this frequent demand for appearances has also made him extremely busy, thus preventing him from promoting his latest projects.
While promoting his new film ‘The Ritual,’ Pattinson stated that he doesn’t want to do as many interviews as he did for ‘Twilight,’ but he does enjoy meeting fans and discussing his craft. In light of this, it comes as no surprise that one of the places he visits most is Madame Tussaud’s, a museum dedicated to famous wax figures.
The Original Waxworks Museum
Founded in 1824, the original waxworks museum in London attracted many famous visitors, including Elizabeth Taylor, who was a regular until her death in 1975. Taylor was also known for her extravagant lifestyle and love of clothes, both of which are on full display at Madame Tussaud’s.
The museum boasts an impressive collection of famous faces, including many who have been photographed by Robert Pattinson. While there, you can also catch a glimpse of wax figures of historical and literary figures, such as William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens. Many of these wax figures are actually for display at more than one museum, as some are duplicates made for the collection.
A Grand Tour Of Vanity Fair
If you’ve ever been to London, you’ll know that the city is full of posh spots. And what’s a trip to London without visiting some of its most famous attractions, such as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben?
One of the best ways to see London is by taking a ride on the famous London Eye, which provides an incredible view of the city. From the top of the Eye, you can see the famous Tower Bridge, as well as the River Thames and its many impressive boats. If you get a little wet, you can watch the river life go by from the comfort of an on board deck.
You can also visit the London Museum of Contemporary Art (LCM) and London Zoo to see some of the city’s most famous landmarks and learn more about its history. The only downside to this type of tour is that not all of the museums and galleries are free, so if you want to see all of London’s most famous sights, you’ll need to set some money aside.
On a more glamorous excursion, you can go to Madame Tussaud’s to see and be photographed with famous faces. Just make sure you book your tickets in advance, because this famed museum doesn’t accept walk-ins. And remember, you’ll need to reserve at least a few days in advance, as this is one of the most popular attractions in London. The good news is that tours leave from different locations throughout the city, so you can choose the one that suits you best.
From The Ashes Of Love To The Great British Bake Off
Another spot that Robert Pattinson visits often is Portrait, the famous ‘Chelsea Arts Club.’ The West London location was initially founded in 1881 and has been a hub for artistic, cultural, and social gatherings since. In addition to being the place to be seen, the club also provides a quiet space for writers and artists to work in.
If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, you could head to the members-only section of the club, which is where you’ll find most of the work stations. Although the club is closed to the public, you can get a peek at the members’ lavish get-ups by pressing the doorbell and waiting for someone to answer. If you want to learn more, you can contact the club directly or visit their website to get tour dates and directions.
In a similar vein, you can go to BAFTA Headquarters and pick up a guidebook that will lead you through the various filming locations for the TV series ‘Game of Thrones.’ Although the locations are mostly closed to the public, you can get a general idea of where the show is set by looking at the guidebook. It’s a great way to learn more about the show without having to watch it, especially if you haven’t seen it yet.
If you want a different kind of adventure, you can go on an organized hike with a group of photographers to capture some truly unique photos of animals in their natural habitat. You’ll get a great insight into the creatures’ behavior and, depending on the time of year, you may even catch sight of some snakes, lizards, and insects as well.
Madame Tussads is most famous for its wax figures, but it also has a collection of stuffed animals, some of which are very rare. If you’ve even considered being a wildlife photographer, you’ll want to visit this museum for the unique opportunity to photograph animals in their natural habitat. There’s also a small collection of human skeletons, which are on display in the center of the room. It’s rumoured that this collection is from the famous Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture at the University of Cambridge.
If you’ve never been there, give it a visit. If you’ve been there and didn’t realize just how famous it is, give it a second visit. You’ll surely walk away with an unforgettable experience.
