It is 1897 and Victorian England is confidently striding to a new century of technological change, scientific mastery and innovation. And yet, from within a castle with walls that protected a millennia, an ancient threat is awakening; keen to explore this brave new world.

Bram Stoker’s timeless gothic thriller embodies the conflict between superstition, science and the unknown. As the looming shadow of Dracula falls over the castle, a small group of young men and women, lead by Professor Van Helsing, are locked in a struggle for survival where only the fittest will survive.

This new immersive adaptation of Bram Stoker’s adventure begins the minute you arrive at the castle... "Enter freely and of your own will." And so it begins...
