A Visit To The Upside Down House Clacton-on-Sea

I have seen people visiting Upside Down Houses on Instagram. They look like lots of fun but we haven’t been near any of the locations to be able to visit one. When Darren told me he had seen one being built at the Clacton Pavilion we added it to our list of places to visit. We got the chance to visit the Upside Down House Clacton-on-Sea on Monther’s Day.

What Is An Upside Down House?

The Upside Down Houses are the perfect place to create a photographic illusion. In these houses, you can take crazy looking photos. Photos that make you look like you are standing on the ceiling of the house. Photos to share on social media to suggest that perhaps you can defy gravity.

Each Upside Down House is different and unique. They all have their own unique interior design styles. So you can visit multiple locations and take different photos in all of them.

Visiting The Upside Down House Clacton-on-Sea

We made sure we got to Clacton-on-Sea early hoping that there wouldn’t be many visitors at the house. There was only one other family in there when we arrived which was perfect for us. You can pre-purchase tickets via the Upside Down House website but we paid on arrival. It cost us £14 for our family to enter the house.

The First Floor

When you enter you find yourself in what would be upstairs in a normal house. On this level, there is a small children’s bedroom, a bathroom and a seating area.

All of the furniture is placed in position on the ceiling so the floor that you are walking on becomes the ceiling in your photos.

On this floor, there is a spiral staircase that will take you up to the second floor of the house.

The Second Floor

This floor is what would be the ground floor of a normal house. In this area, you will find the kitchen, the main bedroom and the main seating area.

Creating Fun Photos In The Upside Down House

The children were very excited about visiting the Upside Down House. They couldn’t wait to step inside. I think they were both just a little bit short to create the perfect illusion of hanging off of the ceiling or being in a world without gravity. But they did have fun and couldn’t wait to see the finished photos.

Darren was in his absolute element in the house. He was taking lots of funny selfies to send to his friends. Darren was also the right height for me to take some funny photos of him. He could have spent ages in the house without us.

I’m so glad we got the chance to step inside an Upside Down House. If we get the chance in the future I’m sure we would love to visit some of the other Upside Down Houses across the country.
