Murder! At Burghley House

The event is expired

There’s been a murder! Join us for an unforgettable experience at the iconic Burghley House, with its long history of starring in shows like The Crown, Pride & Prejudice and The Da Vinci Code. It’s latest quest is to feature as our setting for this nail-biting murder mystery experience. On 19th April 2024, you take the reign as detective to find the culprit!

A thrilling murder mystery experience

You’ll be tasked with solving several murders, getting to meet (and question!) local ‘residents’ and ‘staff’ to uncover who is responsible – we know it’s one of them, but it’s a race to find out who!

As soon as you arrive the work begins. While enjoying your drinks reception with canapés in the Pantry, the scene is set as you meet the characters and your fellow detectives for this murder mystery experience. Speak to the Vicar who reports that Her Ladyship hasn’t been feeling too well. Is it just illness, or is there something more sinister at play?

Afterwards, you’ll be taken through to the beautiful Great Hall, where Queen Elizabeth I had been known to dine, for a sumptuous 4 course fine dining menu curated by the team at Burghley House to fuel your detective minds! During dinner, more murders may occur, and the sense of tension grows as you race to find the killer, you’ll sif through evidence and interview more suspects over dinner to finally bring them to justice.

This thrilling murder mystery experience is limited to just 42 people, dining around the grand table as you soak in the history and grandeur of this magnificent room while it’s closed to the public.
