Murder Mystery in London

Looking for a murder mystery in London? Murder mystery venues in LondonWe have several kinds to choose from at a wide range of prices. And if you can’t find what you want from us, we’ll steer you towards where else to look.

Our murder mysteries take many different forms. Some are participative, some are more “sit back and watch“. Some are perfect for corporate team building, some are intended more for private parties. They cost anything from a few hundred to many thousands of pounds, depending on a number of variables: how many actors/facilitators you have, how many of you there are, how long they take to prepare, how much you spend on food and drink, and so on.

How and Where To Have Your Murder Mystery in London

We have many plots to choose from, suitable for anything from 6 to 250 people. Most last around 3 hours but we can fill shorter and much longer slots, too. London is where we’re based. We’ve been running murder mystery dinners here since 1989. In that time we have organised thousands of events.

Because we aren’t tied exclusively to any particular venues, we can run our whodunits anywhere people want us to – providing there is enough space and privacy. The City and Central London remain the most popular places for dining with death but we’ve run events in pretty much every other borough, too.

We’ll either source a venue for you or bring what we do to a venue you’ve sourced yourselves.

You want someone killed where you work? Happy to oblige.

You’re going to be in a West End hotel all day being very serious, flipcharty and corporate? You’d like us to help everyone relax, mix and mingle and enjoy each other’s company over dinner in the same hotel? We can do it.

A morning mystery in a church hall, an afternoon murder on a boat on the Thames, homicide with high tea in a historic Covent Garden venue or you and some friends having a deadly dinner at home? Yes, we’ve helped make all of them happen.

Tell us how many of you there will be, which part of town you want to be in, which dates you have in mind, how much you might want to spend – and we’ll do the rest.

Ticketed murder mystery evenings

We’ve run several murder mystery evenings open to the public at the Holiday Inn in Bexley. Anyone can come along although you’ll need to book in advance and we recommend 12 as the usual minimum age for them. You can book as a group or in couples or individually. People love them so much we often see the same faces each time – they keep coming back for more! Our next whodunit will be there on June 26th 2020. To book, call the hotel direct on 01322 625 577 or email [email protected].

Best London murder mystery venues

Our murder mysteries can take place any time of day, with or without food. Run by highly experienced, professional actors, we give you and your guests the chance to solve a crime as it unfolds before you. They work brilliantly both as corporate events and private parties. For corporate groups, they break down barriers, set aside work preoccupations, improve team morale and get people mixing, mingling and socialising in a way no standard event ever can. With private parties, they immerse everyone in a relaxed, enjoyable activity which keeps spirits high throughout the whole evening – finishing off with the dramatic moment when the evil murderer is revealed.

Since Covid struck, we’re having trouble sourcing and recommending venues suitable for our mysteries. Some of the ones we used to trust have now lost their way. No doubt others exist but, until we’ve tested them out several times, we’re reluctant to post links to them here. When we have more, we’ll add more. Right now, below are the only ones we’re listing.

If you book them, please let them know you heard about them through us. If none of them work for you, we’re happy to bring what we do to a venue you’ve chosen instead, providing it’s suitable. For more about what to look for and where to find it, please see Find A Murder Mystery Venue. And please let us know if you find anywhere that has worked well for you in Comment, below.
