One of three extraordinary walking tours revealing amazing secrets: most of FRANKENSTEIN - the book that invented science fiction – was written in Bath. And Mary Shelley’s life, as she wrote it, was at least as gothic as the story she created.
FRANKENSTEIN IN BATH is a real life tale of secrets and lies, suicides, concealed births, ruined reputations and false identities.
Walk in Mary Shelley’s footsteps as she created her gothic masterpiece.
See where she lived and wrote – now marked by a plaque after 200 years. Discover where – and why - she hid her dark secrets.
