Dismaland - A Perfect End

After our holiday in St Ives (see last post) Pickle-Lily and I decided a trip to Dismaland would be just the thing to finish our holiday off. It was the perfect ending!
We went on a miserable Monday afternoon and queued for an hour and twenty minutes in the drizzle and finally we were in!
A perfect ending

The check in was brilliant - the amount of detail and grumpiness of the security was amazing. P did enquire about  a job, she felt she that she can do miserable, grumpy and sarcasm with ease, but sadly there were no vacancies.
Once through security it was truly amazing. The old abandoned lido was the most apt setting and it was genuinely hard to decide what was original and what was added. We were very lucky that it wasn't that crowded and we could take our time and see with ease. There are now hundreds, probably thousands of photos on line, and I must admit we did all the 'standard' ones, but I will share some favourites.
Just like our back garden sometimes!

The miniature town was staggering in size and complexity. I wanted to sing 'Stupid deaths' from Horrible Histories when Dancing with Death came out in his bumper car (but was told firmly not to!)
Stupid deaths, stupid deaths ...
 I really liked the cross stitch car and the detail both inside and outside Cinderella's castle. Another favourite was the plants in the cardboard food boxes - staggering.

This was cross stitch
There was lots more there, but I can't do it justice. If you get the chance GO!
