After-Dark Gothic Tour

Take an after-dark historical tour of the darker side of Victorian London as we go back in time to the era of the Gothic novel. In the 200th anniversary year of Frankenstein, what were the fears and anxieties of the 1800s that inspired this celebrated tale of science gone wrong? What was lurking in the shadows of society that seeped out onto the pages of works like Mary Shelley's classic tale?

Hosted by local guide and storyteller Hackney Tours, see Abney Park in a totally different way.

Tour includes after-hours access to Abney Park and a visit to the recently stabilised Chapel (not normally open outside of special events).

Please dress for the weather, torches will be provided.
