Gothic Valentine's: Explore The Dark Side Of Love

For the ultimate, alternative Valentine’s date, why not explore the dark side of love?

As romantic encounters go it’s hard to beat Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein. Their deeply sensual, evocative Gothic atmosphere will have you trembling slightly at the knees as you wonder dreamily about the house.

You will start the experience with a complimentary love potion, blended by your hosts' in-house scientists. You will then explore the impassioned world of Mary and Percy Shelley. Set over four multi-sensory floors you will become immersed in this gothic romance, and discover how this complex, chaotic and tragic love story left such a lasting legacy.

The House also features an 8ft hyper-realistic recreation of the Creature, reproduced for the first time exactly as Mary Shelley described, two rooms dedicated to Frankenstein in popular culture, an intimate screening room, and for the braver visitor, a thrilling horror walkthrough experience in the basement.

For guaranteed goosebumps, extend your visit by booking our Frankenstein Escape Room experience. A horrifyingly-good challenge, filled with riddles, puzzles and a race against time!

You may not be aware that Mary and Percy allegedly consummated their relationship in a graveyard. While we cannot promise that the House of Frankenstein will elicit such a heated response we do believe you’ll be moved, surprised and entertained.
