Beds and Mattresses: Standard, Custom and Record-Breaking!

Longest Time Without Sleep

The fact that this record remains unbroken despite being set way back in 1964 shows just how important it is to get enough sleep. Aged just 17 years old when the record was set, Randy Gardner of the USA spent a mind-boggling 11 consecutive days awake. No stimulants such as caffeine were permitted, making the feat even more impressive.

Largest Sleepover/­Pyjama Party

The funny thing about sleepovers is that nobody really seems to get that much sleep! This didn't stop 2,004 individuals signing up to set this unusual record, which was organised by Girlguiding North West England in Cheshire in 2014.

Loudest Snoring

Though snoring obviously doesn't bother the snorer, it can be severely distressing for their partner. Spare a thought then for the wife of Sweden's Kåre Walkert, who holds the world record for the loudest snoring: clocked at a peak level of 93 decibels, Walkert's snores were louder than a lawnmower!
