The ground has had both ends re-developed during the 1990's along with the front of the Rous stand. Both ends are large single tiered stands, with some strange looking floodlights perched on the roof. There is just one side that lets the ground down. The East Stand is a mish mash of a couple of old stands and an open seated area in one corner. Otherwise there is a vast improvement from the Vicarage Road of old. Away supporters used to have a long walk to the away end as you had to walk around some allotments. However this is no longer the case, as away fans are now housed in the Vicarage Road Stand, at the opposite end of the ground.
Madame Tussaud, a friend of Louis XVI's sister, arrived in England in 1802 fleeing from the French revolution. She brought with her a collection of death masks of guillotined aristocrats. First opened in The Strand, Madame Tussauds waxwork exhibition was later moved to Marylebone Road. Madame Tussauds continued to grow as its creator added to her collection models of English murderers and body snatchers. Today you will find models of well known sports personalities, musicians and film stars, statesmen from around the world, and even the Royal Family. Have fun in the new Superstars and Legends section by searching for your personal hero or heroine, or find your favourite film star and tell them you are their greatest fan.
