    Yes, the waxworks aren't the best, but that's part of the appeal of going to Louis Tussauds in Great Yarmouth.

    Part of the fun in going is trying to guess who some of the waxworks are (here's a tip - if you don't know much about the 1980's you might struggle slightly!)

    If you don't expect the flashy slickness of the tourist traps in London, you should have a laugh at this place!

    One point is that you aren't allowed to take photographs to show people when you get how. They're probably scared people will see how unrealistic they are!

    They auctioned some of the old heads recently and made a few quid, but someone left Paul McCartneys head on a train. It was later found by a tramp.

    Ah. Um. Yes. Well...

    As others have said, if you don't go expecting the quality associated with his great-grandmother, then it's possible to have a great time playing Guess Who at the House Of Wax before you see the names attached to each famous figure.

    You do wonder if any of the celebrities featured would laugh or prosecute. Even Mussolini (in spite of death). My favourite was undoubtedly The Man in The Iron Mask  with the mask on, it was an uncanny resemblance.

    Given how much fun you can have per pound of the entrance fee, you could actually argue that this is better value than Madame Tussauds.

    This is located at the end of Regent road to be honest the wax works are bad compared to what you pay to get in. However it is a good laugh but dont take your kids as I was terrified when my parent took me when I was 6!!

    Much has been made of the supposedly poor quality of the waxworks at Great Yarmouth's answer to that overpriced tourist trap in the capital. However, I choose to look upon this feature positively and you can have a great deal of fun in the process. Try to ignore the name tags and guess amongst yourselves who that is. Great laughter will erupts when you find out that the Beach Boys are actually a group of past Prime Ministers. A nice bonus is the vintage arcade at the end of the museum, with pinball tables and other classic games. So, visit the waxworks with an open mind and you are sure to have a good time. Honest.

    Not great waxworks if I'm honest, the prices seem very high to see a few unrealistic characters, very situated though and friendly staff
