Event description

Description

Take an after-dark historical tour of the sinister side of 19th Century London as we go back in time to the Gothic novel era, exploring the heart of Victorian darkness...

What was lurking in the shadows of 1800s society that bled out onto the pages of works like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein? Why does this classic tale of technology and ambition gone hideously wrong still resonate today? What's the connection to the radical history of Abney Park and the rich rebel heritage of Hackney? And what are the surprising similarities with our current concerns over issues like technology and democracy?

Hosted by local guide, writer and storyteller Hackney Tours (as seen at Stokey Lit Fest etc), this adventure will help you see Abney Park and Hackney in a different way, and possibly even the contemporary psychic landscape.

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

Please note refunds are only possible up to 7 days in advance. Dress for the winter outdoors!

Suggested age range 14+

* In the unlikely event of very high winds or heavy rain that may make the tour an ordeal rather than an adventure, Abney Park reserve the right to call the tour off in the last resort and of course notify participants.
