Frankenstein in Bath: Private Tour

Go on a journey through Bath and discover the real life tale of secrets and lies, suicides, concealed births, ruined reputations and false identities.

One of Bath's best kept secrets is that most of Frankenstein - the book that invented science fiction - was written in Bath. And while she wrote it, Mary Shelley’s life was at least as gothic as the story she created. You'll walk in her footsteps and see where she lived and wrote, which is now finally marked by a plaque after 200 years. Discover where - and more intriguingly why - she hid her dark secrets.

Here’s a chance to go on a journey through time with the award-winning Show of Strength, hosted by Sheila, who has a passion for sharing the secret history of Bristol and Bath.
