Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein, the world’s first attraction dedicated to the author and her creation, is offering a pre-opening discount of up to 20 percent off through April 25.

House of Frankenstein will boast four atmospheric floors exploring the author’s past, as well as the tragic events and literary interests that gave birth to her novel about young scientist Victor Frankenstein.

It also looks at Mary Shelley’s trip to the Villa Diodati in Geneva, and offers visitors the chance to experience Frankenstein’s laboratory where they’ll meet the monster himself.

Additionally, there will be a horror-themed walk-through experience in a foreboding basement with dark alcoves, cellars and vaults. These are brought to life through intense audio and visual effects, as well as disturbing scenes.

Frankenstein fans will learn about the monster in popular culture, with a whole floor dedicated to vintage memorabilia and props and a shop selling unique merchandise.

“Few realise that Mary Shelley wrote much of her iconic novel while living in Bath over 200 years ago,” said Chris Harris, co-founder of Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein.

“We are excited to mark this historical connection to the city and commemorate her life in a way that has never been seen before,” added Harris.

“With a bizarre collection of memorabilia, set within a chilling immersive experience, we can’t wait to open our doors.”
