Best Attractions in North London
Generally speaking, the North parts of London are considered the districts that are north of River Thames. The N postcode area include the London boroughs of Islington, Hackney, Barnet, Camden, Haringey and Enfield. It includes 22 numbered districts plus the Kings Cross Central, N1C and the vast majority of the London Underground network.
Besides that, North London is the home of numerous touristic attractions, including the famous Madame Tussauds and other famous and interesting museums, impressing historic buildings and not the least, one of the biggest London stadiums: The Emirates that houses Arsenal F.C.
Madame Tussauds galleries were opened in the current location, on Marylebone Road, NW1 5LR in 1884. Previously, Marie Tussaud settled on Baker Street and displayed some of her work, until the building became overcrowded. The museum presents natural sized waxworks of historical figures, film and sports stars or characters and royals. London’s museum is the first one opened in Europe and in the world. Over time, the interest for this kind of location grew and now all the major cities have a Madame Tussauds museum. An interesting thing is that there are a few figures that appear in every museum across the world, as Lady Gaga’s and Michael Jackson’s statues.
