Overnight Experience

Imagine an absolutely bonkers place, in the middle of nowhere.

A mannequin graveyard where thousand of mannequins exist in piles, seated in groups and standing amongst the trees.

This is an incredible opportunity to stay overnight in the mannequin graveyard.

Yes it is creepy enough in the day time, but at night it’s a whole new world.

Please read all advisory notes below before booking in.

    I was fortunate enough to be the 1st person to stay overnight, in my campervan, at Mannakin. I’m a photographer and took the night-time photos you see on here.
    It was a wonderful, if sometimes unnerving, experience!
    I can certainly recommend it, especially if you’re looking for something different to photograph. It fits that brief for sure!

    Roz invited us for a dummy run,pardon the pun,with the campervan, the place really comes alive at night,take a walk round the graveyard once dark and a whole new world awaits . Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely return. Definitely something you should experience if you dare.
