Upside-Down House changes the view in Brighton

Brighton's Upside Down House
By Zac Sherratt

Brighton is now home to a head-spinning new attraction which sees visitors step foot inside a replica house, in which all fixtures and fittings hang from the ‘ceiling’. 

Artist Tom Dirse was inspired to create the Upside-Down House so people can experience what it is like to walk upside-down, all in the name of capturing the perfect photograph. 

Mr Dirse wants friends and families to snap photographs of each other, then flip the photo 180 degrees to make it appear as though people are upside down.


The Brighton edition of Dirse’s houses focuses on a seaside theme and will see regular changes to its decor to reflect the seasons, both inside and out.  

The first instalment of the popular collection opened in Bournemouth in November 2018, with Brighton becoming the fourth in the series.  

A planning application was submitted for the structure earlier this year, it took two weeks to build, and sees an extra five jobs created during its lifetime. 

Open from 10am – 8pm weekdays and 10am – 9pm Saturday and Sunday, the Upside-Down House will remain in place until mid-2020. 

Tickets range from £4-5, with children under three entering free of charge.
