Below are details of 3 castles that offer Murder Mystery events, taking place at regular intervals throughout the year, which anyone can join. If you are looking for a bespoke Murder Mystery dinner for a group booking or castle corporate event, we can help arrange these at any castle; contact us for more information.

Walworth Castle

Twelfth century Walworth Castle is set in 12 acres of grounds in North-east England, near to the town of Darlington.

As the evening begins, the teams of detectives are introduced to the suspects. You will receive some clues to help start your investigation and then you will be given a chance to interrogate the suspects face to face as they each visit the tables. As the event proceeds, more evidence will be presented and guests will have a chance to interrogate the suspects one more time before submitting their conclusions. Once all of the conclusions are submitted, the suspects will show the audience exactly what happened! The event ends with a presentation to the winning groups, along with remarks on the other groups’ efforts.

Murder Mystery nights take place on chosen dates throughout the year; contact us for prices and dates.

Coombe Abbey

Coombe Abbey is a 12th-century Cistercian abbey located in Warwickshire, England, approximately 2 hours' drive from London.

It is 1942. Coventry has been ravaged by bombings, and Coombe Abbey is a convalescent hospital for wounded soldiers. In order to raise the morale of the patients and staff, the doctors have arranged for some entertainment from Ena Gladstone, the popular forces' sweetheart. But when one of the patients dies in suspicious circumstances, all manner of questions is raised...

The event takes place on selected weekend dates throughout the year and is suitable for ages 16 years and above; enquire for prices and dates.

Lumley Castle

Lumley Castle is a 14th-century castle located in North-east England, just outside the city of Durham.

In the early 1970′s a murder took place at Lumley Castle. Lord Marcus Lumley, the aristocratic but impoverished owner of Lumley Castle, has been found dead. He appears to have had a heart attack despite the fact that a recent checkup found him to be in excellent health. Lord Lumley spent his last evening in the company of his wife, a family friend and a Clairvoyant he had invited to the castle. Was his death due to natural causes or did one of his companions have…. a motive for murder?

Murder Mystery evenings take place on selected weekend dates throughout the year and are suitable for adults and children 12 years and above. Room prices vary throughout the year; enquire for further information and prices.
