Ironically labelled as UK’s most disappointing new visitor attraction, the Dismaland art project constructed in England by the street artist Banksy offers visitors a chance to dip into feelings of despair and face creative reflections of a harsh but true reality.

From an installation of a killer whale jumping out of a toilet to the park’s staff who aren’t supposed to be helpful or cheerful – Dismaland is an unusually gloomy but uniquely refreshing source of amusement.
