Very few know that In 1816, Mary Shelley wrote much of the world’s first science fiction novel, Frankenstein, while living in Bath.
Extending over four atmospheric floors, Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein is an award winning, multi-sensory visitor museum where visitors will be immersed in Shelley’s unconventional tragic life and the lasting legacy of her infamous creation.
Bursting with unusual artefacts, ominous soundtracks, bespoke smells and special effects, we also present an 8ft animatronic breathing creature, authentically reproduced for the first time exactly as Mary Shelley described.
The House also features two rooms dedicated to popular culture, an intimate screening room showing the first ever Frankenstein film from 1910, a Frankenstein-themed Escape Room, The Body In A Suitcase immersive game and, for the braver visitor, a thrilling horror walkthrough experience in the basement.
Exclusive Private Hire Includes:
The entire house to yourselves plus character hosts to look after your event.
Free rein for your guests to relax in our Gothic-themed Bloody Mary’s Bar, a fully stocked paid bar and signature cocktails.
Ten uniquely themed rooms set over four atmospheric floors.
A creepy walkthrough Basement experience.
Price is from £395 for up to 24 people. All events can be tailored to suit you and can include Victor's Lair or The Shallows Escape Rooms, The Body In A Suitcase Game and welcome drinks.
Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01225 551542.
