Chester tourist attraction that’s booming with thousands of visitors
A Chester dark tourism attraction has reported that a growing love of the macabre seems to be behind its bumper visitor figures for April.
Sick to Death, based in St Michael’s Church in Chester city centre, has reported a successful month to date, with around 4,000 visitors having already walked through the doors. The total for April 2022 was around 3,000 visitors.
The attraction offers visitors a chance to explore and learn about the history of medicine via a number of interactive exhibits. It describes itself as ‘a playground of plague with a smatter of splatter, and a chance to poke into our medical past’.
The venue’s humorous take on what could be seen as a grim subject has proved a hit on social media, with many people visiting after enjoying its videos on TikTok. Such videos have included the attraction’s resident Plague Doctor riding through the streets of Chester on a mobility scooter.
Sick to Death manager Rob Foulkes said they were delighted with the rise in visitor numbers, including the amount of visitors in what tended to be slower months for visitor attractions, such as December and January.
