REVEALED: Which tourist attraction is the most expensive in the UK?On April 15, 2018 by Margot
Tourist attractions are the perfect way to experience a city and learn about its history and culture.
Whilst most museums are free, many attractions have a fee to enter with some ticket prices seeming rather pricey.
For people choosing to visit with a family, it can quickly become an expensive day out when purchasing for every member.
But where is the most expensive tourist attraction found in the UK?
One of the priciest can be found, not surprisingly, in the capital city.
Madame Tussauds is one of the pricier tourist attractions, costing £35 for an adult ticket.
Whilst a number of London tourist cards can help save costs when visiting more than one attraction, a family of four can easily spend £100 in one visit.
The most expensive is tied in first place with Harry Potter Studio in Watford which costs £35 for adults also.
Other expensive tourist attractions can be found in the capital, with the Houses of Parliament costing £28 per person and the London Eye and Buckingham Palace both costing £24.
It may come as no surprise that visitor numbers to tourist attractions in London have recently dropped.
Thankfully, a number of attractions in the UK are free, with museums and art galleries often allowing members of the public to enter with just suggested donations.
The most popular tourist attraction in the UK, the British Museum, is free with a £5 donation requested.
Pricey excursions outside of London include Stonehenge for £19.50 per person, Cadburys World in Birmingham costing £18 and £18.50 to visit Edinburgh Castle.
For some extreme luxury, the most expensive tourist attractions in the world cost thousands of pounds.
A visit to the House of Bourbon in Paris can be as much as £1,268, whilst a Zoo Tour in Antarctica is upwards of £21,000 for a guided ten-day tour to see the animals.
The Evian Bath, found in Miami, costs up to £7,700 which includes accommodation with the most expensive bath in the world.
With popular tourist attractions come large queues as travellers around the world attempt to see it for themselves.
The famous Catacombs in Paris can have over four hours waiting in the peak summer months, whilst the London Eye is the worst in the UK with two and a half hours all year round.
The Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel all have an average of two hours, according to TripAdvisor.
Buying queue jump tickets can prevent this problem by being able to skip ahead.
Doing the research and choosing places such as the Notre Dame with just an hour wait can prevent a day being wasted.
