Dismaland

Today (22 September) I went with friends for a jolly jaunt to Weston Super Mare….

WSM beach and Wales

…and being a clear day could see Wales which was fun but the focus of the journey was to visit the Dismaland Bemusemement Park.

Entrance

A fascinating experience and one that should not be missed – but you will have to get a move on as it closes this weekend.

It is a theme park with a difference created by Banksy and includes works of art from more than 50 artists from 17 different nations. It also has a bar and a cinema.

There are a number of creations from Banksy himself….

The Grim Reaper
