You can now defy gravity at this amazing Manchester Upside Down House

Who isn’t fascinated by the idea of an upside-down house?

As attractions go, it’s pretty special. In fact, there are only three in the whole country.

And now Manchester has one at the Trafford Centre – which has been opened just in time for October’s half-term holidays.

Situated outside the Orient, the topsy-turvy experience is certainly novel – using optical illusions to make you look like you’re floating. 

It will undergo a spooky makeover from 20th October for Halloween, and later take on a festive look in the run up to Christmas with reindeers and twinkly lights. 

Visitors can take topsy turvy pictures and walk on the ceiling of the inverted two-storey building – which comes fully furnished with a kitchen, bathroom, living room art and bedroom.  

They can also go up and downstairs, and even do handstands on the sofa. 

The Upside Down House will be open until October 2020. Tickets bought online cost £3.50 on weekdays and £4.50 on weekends, or £5 if bought on the day. Under threes go free.
