Six Exciting Things to Do this October Half Term

Defy gravity at Brighton’s Upside Down House

This October Brighton’s Upside Down House will be creaking open its doors across the country to a frightful haunted house experience. In a year when the whole world was turned upside down, the idea of hanging from the ceiling may feel almost normal, but think again! Creepy crawlies and skeleton’s await as guests explore the two-storey house. All is definitely not as it seems inside; are the stairs travelling up or down? And what’s hidden behind the doors and corners? Open from the 19th October – 1st November, guests will be able to capture gravity defying photos and enter into a photo competition, with the best images receiving a £50 Amazon voucher. Tickets cost £5 per person. For more information please visit: https://www.upsidedownhouse.co.uk/locations/brighton/
