Maybe you've done the Time Warp at countless midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but have you ever done it at Dr. Frank-N-Furter's actual castle? This August, the Oakley Court hotel in Bray, England, which served as Dr. Frank-N-Furter's castle in the iconic horror comedy, will open its doors for its annual Time Warp picnic that includes an overnight stay, outdoor buffet, and a screening of the classic musical.

As reported by Stephan Horbelt at Hornet, the annual Time Warp picnic will take place on Sunday, August 25th and costs £260.00 per room. At this time the event is fully booked, but if you wish to add your name to a wait list, you can email

As mentioned on Hornet, the Rocky Horror filming locations from the Oakley Court include the entryway where Brad and Janet arrived one stormy night, the grand staircase, and the room where dinner was served.

According to Hornet, the Oakley Court's original structure (which includes nine "mansion suites" that guests can still stay in) also served as a filming location for The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Theater of Blood (1973) and The Brides of Dracula (1960).
